Assessment of Safer Polysulfide and Polythioether Sealant Removers for Aerospace/Defense Industry Applications
This assessment identifies and evaluates potentially safer alternatives for sealant removal applications. The sealant removal performance of the alternatives was evaluated using a designed experiment.
Electrodeposition of Ni-Fe-Mo-W Alloys - Part 4
4th-6th Quarterly Report - AESF Research Project #R-117. This NASF-AESF Foundation research project report covers the fourth through sixth quarters of project work (October 2013-June 2014).
Chromium-free Etching and Palladium-free Plating of Plastics
Plastics are replacing metals in the manufacture of many parts, and quite often there is a need for metallic coatings on the plastics and other non-conductors. This paper will describe new processes of preparing ABS plastic substrates for subsequent metallization. A process replacing the traditional chromic acid etching step with a room-temperature, environmentally friendly etchant is described. Further, to address the high cost of palladium, a non-precious-metal activator has been developed that can obtain uniform, adherent metallic coatings on plastic substrates.
Hex Chromium-Free Sealants for Defense and Aerospace
Results of second phase of research conducted by top defense contractors.
Toxic Heavy Metal Free Stabilized Electroless Nickel Processes
This paper will introduce an advanced alternative to Pb and Cd-free electroless nickel processes, which is completely free of toxic heavy metal (THM) stabilizers. The process and deposit characteristics will be discussed and compared to the traditionally Pb stabilized electroless nickel.
