Abstract : Three LP-2 type materials (x-464612, x-464626, x-464645) were tested as access door sealants in the B-58 integral fuel tanks. As there were no specifications covering s ch aterials, several test procedures considered applicable to this type of material were selected from presently available high temperature sealant specifications, FMS-0008 and MIL-S-8802. Tests include tensile strength, % elongation, application time, flow and low temperature flexibility, resistance to heat, pressure and fuel in a typical faying surface application. X-464645 was considered the most suitable for use as access door sealants.
