Abstract : Eight chaneel sealants and one 50-50 mixture of two channel sealants were screened in accordance with the adhesion, low temperature flexibility, and reinjection properties tests of the proposed F-111 channel sealant speci fication. Although none of the candidate channel sealants tested passed all three screening tests without some qualifications, two materials appear to show promise as F-111 integral fuel tank sealants.
