Abstract : Six sealants were submitted for evaluation per MIL-S-8802, the proposed high temperature (275 F) sealant specification. Sealants 3C-1177 and 3C-1055 were lacking in adhesion and elongation properties. Sealant EC-1610 tests showed it to be a long work life, high flow, low strength material possessing excellent adhesion, high temperature, and fuel resistant properties. I-222 had very good high temperature resistance in the thermal shock, thermal extrusion, and thermal rupture tests, but lacked the application and adhesion properties required by the specification. Sealant PR-1422 had the best all-around fuel and high temperature properties. PR-1422 wa. (Author)
