PPG recently announced that it has begun qualification and shop trials for a line of aerospace sealants. The new sealants are cured on demand using ultraviolet (UV) light, reportedly allowing for reductions in process time, waste and costs while increasing efficiency. The sealants y are fuel-resistant, offer low shrinkage, are highly flexible and exhibit excellent physical properties.

“The new UV-cured SCOD (sealants cured on demand) family of aerospace sealants based on proprietary PPG Permapol technology represents the next inspired step in aerospace sealant technology, one that promises to provide value, performance and cost savings to our customers,” said Bill Keller, global segment manager, aerospace sealants.
