4.1 Durable adhesive bonds to aluminum alloys can be obtained reliably only through proper selection and careful control of the materials used and the steps in the bonding process. The preparation of the aluminum alloys to obtain clean, uniform surfaces with appropriate characteristics is a critical step. This practice describes how such surfaces can be obtained.View Less
1.1 This practice covers the preparation of clean uniform surfaces of aluminum alloys suitable for formation of durable adhesive bonds to nonmetallic honeycomb materials in the manufacture of sandwich panels for tactical shelters.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard where only SI units are given or where SI units are given first followed by inch-pound units; where inch-pound units are given first followed by SI units, the inch-pound units are to regarded as standard.
