CONTAINER REPAIR - CONTINUED
REPAIR OF FACE SKIN DAMAGE (ALUMINUM-BONDED MATERIAL) - CONTINUED
On exterior side of panel, apply thin, even layer of adhesive to bonding surfaces of face sheet and patch. Position
patch in place with 1/8 in. (3.18 mm) sheet fasteners.
Install 1/8 in. (3.18 mm) universal head blind rivets in all drilled holes.
Dowclene EC is flammable and harmful to eyes, skin, and breathing passages. Observe all fire precautions.
Use only with adequate ventilation and with approved personal protective equipment. Failure to follow
this warning may result in injury or death to personnel.
Remove any excess adhesive from outer surfaces of repair by wiping with cloth dampened in Dowclene EC.
Repeat procedures in steps t through v for patch on inner side of panel.
Repair will be fully cured after approximately 7 days at 75F (24C) or 1 hour at 180F (82C). Approximately 70
percent of strength is reached after 24-hour cure at room temperature of 75F (24C).
PRC 1422 B-2 sealant is flammable and harmful to eyes, skin, and breathing passages. Observe all fire pre-
cautions. Use only with adequate ventilation and with approved personal protective equipment. Failure
to follow this warning may result in injury or death to personnel.
After repair has cured for 24 hours, coat edges of patch and rivet heads with PRC 1422 B-2 sealant.
After repair, touch up with epoxy primer and CARC paint as required.
REPAIR OF FACE/SKIN DAMAGE TO FIBERGLASS REINFORCED PLASTICS (FRP) MATERIAL
Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics (FRP) materials, contain minute particles of glass and resin. Appropriate
eye and respiratory protection during cutting, grinding and sanding operations is required. Dust particles
may cause skin irritation. Failure to follow this warning may result in injury or death to personnel.
Chemicals in the resins and catalysts may also cause discomfort if prolonged contact is made with the
skin. Read all instructions carefully and observe good safety practices. Smoking should be prohibited in
the immediate area while working with resins and solvents. Failure to follow this warning may
result in injury or death to personnel.
Repairs should be made only to clear and dry surfaces at temperatures above 50F (10C). Lower tempera-
tures may prevent effective curing process.
