It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The next best process to PAA would be any method of etching the aluminum surface to roughen the profile. This discussion is limited to single-lap specimens and shear strength only for simplification. PAA and Chromic acid anodizing are thin coatings which I wouldn’t expect to have nearly the astk effect on fatigue strength that much thicker coatings like sulfuric anodizing have, yet they are somewhat porous and adhere to the substrate well, while being corrosion resistant.

Thanks you for your input regarding the suitability of sulphuric acid anodizing as a substitute for PAA. He sought a practical methodology that would yield the necessary data. NOTE 1—Most regionally distributed potable water will meet these requirements. Please first log in with a verified email d933 subscribing to alerts.

For alloys with a lot of Chrome, the aztm will become a greenish color.

The discoloration could be related to some of the alloying materials dissolved in solution. Techniques for Adhesives by R. He had to define many material characteristics and ultimately prove that the product would be functional, durable and corrosion-resistant in the aggressive transportation environment, which was no easy feat. Standard guides for automotive and aerospace adhesives provide the proper guides for the classification, specification, preparation, and use of several adhesives on aluminum and metal surfaces.


In theory, his invention had a potential fit in other applications, but he targeted automotive as his first foray to solve a vexing industry problem. We are trying to get BAC compliant since it is going to be used as the “straw man” for the new Nadcap spec. March 16, A. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. I don’t think this is possible, but I thought I should at least try to post the question.

Likewise, ASTM provides myriad testing protocols for adhesive bonding. Need a source for PAA etch to D [link by ed. However, it is most desirable to prime parts as soon as possible to minimize the possibility of inadvertent contamination. Improper surface preparation can produce seemingly acceptable bonds that can degrade rapidly with astj. Parts must be transferred to the clean room within two hours of removal from the PAA line and be primed within 72 hours. See D [link by ed.

It is not intended for the selection of materials. After priming, parts can be stored before bonding.

I have searched the web and cannot find much technical info. Recently one of my long-time colleagues with an electrical engineering background retired. Does the spent solution turn yellow with continued use? If you are interested, one I might suggest is Surface Prep. I would suggest starting there with some of the engineering requirements then go to the PAA spec. We have tried lots with various tapes with Acrylic, Rubber and Silicone adhesives.

Tanks should be equipped with a surface skimming device to remove surface contamination, a?

I have just quoted a large phosphoric anodize job. The Mil spec was written to get people to use stressed, environmental testing for adhesive bonding quality control instead of relying only on plain lap shear tests and to use good overall practices. I work for a company that specializes in composite structures. Precision and Bias 9. Phosphoric acid anodizing is done with stainless steel cathodes.


Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. If Boeing’s BAC spec is still active, astj it would be prudent to consider it’s use. The method may be revised or supplemented, as necessary, to include methods based on proven performance. Quality Assurance Provisions 8.

Phosphoric acid anodizing per BAC5555 and ASTM D3933-98

Cynthia Gosselin guest blogger, ChemQuest. Abrupt differences in color of local areas, except at electrical contact points, from the background color are not acceptable.

That is a management decision.

If you want a quick and dirty demonstration, make standard peel test specimens from candidate surface preps. If you want a quick and dirty demonstration, make standard peel zstm specimens from candidate surface preps. Other considerations include temperature and humidity effects on joint strength, moisture inhibitors, and retaining joint integrity in cyclic environmental conditions.

The first is used by Boeing for adhesive bonding. Some applications require more complex information related to aging, d3393, flexural strength of laminated assemblies and impact strength.

Even well-established zstm are seeking cost-effective yet scientifically rigorous testing protocols in ! We would like to know if it is it normal for the solution to turn a yellow color after processing.

Take a look at this sites “must have” book list. There are very stringent requirements for application and inspection of phosphoric acid anodized parts [for aerospace application].
