Scope AMS Committee G9, Aerospace Sealing, shall be primarily concerned with the sealing of aerospace vehicles for fluid containment and environmental protection by the use of sealants which are applied and cured to solid materials or are permanently mastic. This includes the preparation of sealant material specifications, aerospace recommended practices for sealing processes and related activities. Examples of applications are the sealing of integral fuel tanks, fuel cell cavities, crew compartments and passenger areas, access doors, fasteners, avionics compartments, windshields, firewalls, etc. The committee shall also be involved with elastomeric fuel cells. The committee shall address the effort on the environment of cured and uncured sealant materials and their containers and recommend approved practices for their proper disposal. The committee shall also be involved with elastomeric fuel cells. The committee shall participate in discussions on various sealing materials and processes and provide comments and views on relevant research and development efforts.
