Standard Practice for Adhesive Bonding of Aluminum Facings in Foam and Beam Type Shelters

Significance and Use

4.1 The formation of reproducible, durable adhesive bonds in structural units requires great care in the performance of the steps in the bonding process. Experience has shown that adhesive bonding carried out in accordance with this practice produces reproducible adhesive bonds. This practice is applicable to both the Type 1, 160 °F (71 °C), and Type 2, 200 °F (93 °C), elevated humidity service type of foam and beam shelter.


1.1 This practice covers the materials, processes, and quality controls to be used in the manufacture of adhesive-bonded, aluminum-faced, foam core sandwich panels for tactical shelters.

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that 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.
