Aerotak -- one component, flame retardant water-based adhesive



Chemique Adhesives expands its range of aircraft adhesives with a new one component, flame retardant water-based adhaerotakesive

Chemique Adhesives, a leading manufacturer of innovative adhesive products has recently expanded its range of aircraft adhesives with the addition of a new one component, flame retardant water-based adhesive.

The Aerotak range currently includes a variety of specially formulated adhesives that are ideally suited for use in the manufacture of aircraft seat covers and cushions.

The new addition to the range - Aerotak 3176 is a flame-retardant adhesive that has been developed to meet the highest safety standards as outlined in fire testing requirements from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency)

This novel one component sprayable, water-based polychloroprene adhesive has excellent adhesion to various substrates including foam, leather, fabric, e-leather and scrim materials. It is ideally suited for use within the aerospace industry for manufacturing aircraft seating and its formulation has an instant tack when sprayed, offering immediate bonding capabilities whilst exhibiting a soft bond line.

John Bellerby, Technical Manager at Chemique Adhesives comments “As a business we are committed to offering high performance, cost effective solutions for all of our customers’ bonding requirements and we’ve looked carefully at the needs of the aircraft interiors manufacturing sector and were able to develop a fire retardant foam and fabric adhesive specifically for aircraft seat fabrication which meets all flammability test requirements”.

Aerotak 3176 is a sprayable, flame-retardant adhesive that has an instant strong bond and handling strength without force drying. As well as this it has excellent heat resistance and is repositionable if required.

All adhesives in the Aerotak range have been tested to meet the stringent flammability certification requirements to CS 25.853 (a) Amdt.16 App F Part 1a 1(ii) & (b) 4.
