Standard Practice for Preparation of Aluminum Alloy for Bonding in Foam and Beam Type Transportable Shelters

Significance and Use

4.1 Reproducible and durable adhesive bonds to aluminum alloys can be obtained reliably only through proper selection and careful control of the materials used and the steps in the bonding process. The preparation of the aluminum alloys to obtain clean, uniform surfaces with appropriate characteristics is a critical step. This practice describes how such surfaces can be obtained.

Scope

1.1 This practice covers the preparation of clean, uniform surfaces of aluminum alloy suitable for formation of durable adhesive bonds in “foam and beam” panels used for the manufacture of tactical rigid wall shelters.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
