LOCTITE EA 9696 030NW AERO
LOCTITE EA 9696 .030 PSF NW FILM ADHESIVE
LOCTITE EA 9696 AERO is a modified epoxy film adhesive designed for applications requiring both high toughness and service temperatures to 250°F/121°C. Advances in technology allow this adhesive to excel in both metal to metal and honeycomb bonding applications. Ability to cure at low temperatures; balanced flow; excellent environmental resistance; exceeds creep and fatigue requirements; and long shop out-time make it suitable for a variety of bonding applications.
Applying – Bonding surfaces should be clean, dry and properly prepared. For optimum surface preparation consult the LOCTITE Surface Preparation Guide. The adhesive film, with one liner left on it, may be tacked to the detail part for cutting to shape and size. The liner should remain with the adhesive until just before assembly of the detail to the other faying surface. This will minimize contamination of the adhesive bond. The bonded parts should be held in contact until the adhesive has cured, usually 25 to 50 psi (172 to 345 kPa) is sufficient to assure proper part mating.
Curing – This product may be cured for 60 to 90 minutes between 225°F to 265°F/107°C to 129°C. Heat-up rate to the cure temperature is not critical, but should be between 1° and 10°F (0.6° and 5.6°C) per minute. Pressure should be applied before heating the parts to be bonded and maintained until cool down of the assembly.
