Aero Surfacing Film - Loctite EA 9845 SF

With weight saving being a fundamental driver within the aerospace industry, Henkel will be showcasing its lightweight Loctite EA 9845 SF Aero surfacing film. It can provide up to 30% weight savings compared to existing surfacing films. In addition, it provides a reduction in manufacturing process time, through the minimized prepaint preparations.

The film can be co-cured at 120 OR 177°C, provide excellent surface finish and is capable to be processed out of autoclave. It protects the underlying composite materials, and has enhanced UV and Paint Stripper resistance.

High Quality Surface Finishing

Along with light weighting also lightning strike protection is key to support the aerospace industry development. Loctite EA 9845LC Aero, based on Loctite EA 9845SF Aero surfacing film, provides the same high quality surface finishing but also incorporates lightning-strike protection. This film includes lightweight, expanded copper or aluminum mesh for maximum electrical conductivity and protection of aircraft composite parts.

The use of an integrated lightning strike solution reduces the number of materials to be inventoried and provides a manufacturing cost reduction. Loctite EA 9845LC Aero lightning strike film is available in a variety of area weights to meet the requirements of different lightning strike zones on the aircraft.

Henkel Aerospace Presentation

During the show, Ruairi O’Kane, Product Development Manager at Henkel, will give a technical presentation about a new generation of Fast Curing Shim Materials; this will be on Wednesday March 15, at 15.00 in Hall 5A.
