Adhesive/Sealant, Fluorosilicone Aromatic Fuel Resistant, One-Part Room Temperature Vulcanizing
- Aerospace Material Specification
This specification covers a one-part fluorosilicone (FVMQ) adhesive/sealant, supplied in cartridges, suitable for extrusion and curing to an elastomeric material upon exposure to air. It also covers a compatible primer.
This adhesive/sealant has been used typically for bonding cured fluorosilicone rubber and for sealing applications requiring resistance to fuels, oils, or solvents from -65 to +400 degrees F (-54 to +204 degrees C). but usage is not limited to such applications. This product should not be used for fay surface sealing or similar applications where exposure to air cannot be maintained. This product should not be used in thicknesses greater than 0.25 inch (6.4 mm), particularly in applications involving encapsulation.

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.
