The draft, “Guide for Selecting Aerospace and General Purpose Adhesives and Sealants,” is designed to be application-specific for each bonding or sealing use. Its extensive procedural tables provide both design engineers and users a compatibility of product/process with the part material/subsequent process, such as adherent/substrate cleaning and preparation. When completed, the guide will be a useful tool for those developing bonding or sealing requirements for manufacturing, maintenance or overhaul. Currently, the subcommittee on the Web- based ASTM Interactive Standards Development Forum is reviewing the guide.
