This company now offers a two-component adhesive for aircraft interiors. Made from epoxy resin, DELO-DUOPOX AB8390 can be used for bonding lightweight overhead storage bins found in airplanes. In addition to ditch and pot applications, this flame-retardant construction adhesive is suitable for load-bearing connections with inserts.
Before adhesives can be used in aircraft interiors, they are subject to various tests to ensure they meet the requirements for fire protection, including FST, flammability, smoke density, and toxicity in accordance with CS/FAR part 25 §25.853 (a)(1)(ii)/(d) and ABD0031. DELO-DUOPOX reportedly independently fulfills all the qualifications.
This colorfast white, high-strength construction adhesive reportedly offers good resistance in temperatures ranging from -55°-85°C. It will remain white for more than 1,000 hours at 70°C with an air humidity of 85%, keeping it aesthetically pleasing to passengers without having to be painted and varnished during assembly.
