The fasteners are used to install components in composite floor panels, galley walls, bulkheads and lavatory cabinets. Among the epoxy syntactic systems frequently specified for aircraft composite reinforcing are: Epocast® 1618-D/B low-density epoxy syntactic, Epocast® 1633-A/B low-density epoxy syntactic and Epocast® 1652-A/B medium-density epoxy syntactic. Uralane® 5774-A/B polyurethane adhesive is also used for potting of inserts made from materials such as Torlon® polyamide-imide. The Huntsman insert potting materials are either self-extinguishing or flame-retardant to satisfy FAA regulations. Physical performance properties include: Qualified to Boeing, Sikorsky and other OEM specifications Easy to handle viscosities High strength Ability to withstand temperatures up to 350ºF, depending on product
