Devcon 5-Minute Epoxy FR from Techsil is being used by the maintenance department at Lufthansa Cityline on seat arm supports. The arm supports have to be repaired on a regular basis due to the high stresses in this area.

The airline required a fast-curing epoxy to repair the plan seats with minimum disruption to flights.

The maintenance department decided to bond the damaged threaded collar out of anodised steel into the Epoxy-GRP seat construction using Devcon 5-Minute Epoxy FR.

The two-part epoxy paste sets rapidly and is suitable for applications requiring a self-extinguishing structural adhesive system.

5-Minute Epoxy FR was applied to bond composite CRP to anodised steel.

Key benefits of product application

  • Excellent adhesion on both substrates (higher strength compared with the original parts)
  • Perfect viscosity to bond the collar into the seat construction
  • Short fixture times to get the products immediately back in use
  • Flame-retardant formulations that comply with high standards in the aviation industry
