FR Film Adhesive

November 30, -0001

The Transportation Division of Bostik, Inc. has introduced a strippable high performance, fire retardant film adhesive.  It re­places solvent-based ad­hesives used to bond decorative laminates to composite panels for in­terior aerospace appli­ca­tions. Bos­tik’s FPA110-1FR film ad­hesive has ex­cellent adhesion to Tedlar, vinyl, aluminum, polyamide film, phenolic pre­pregs and various fabrics and wools.

This product is fire retardant and passes Boeing specification BMS 5-158 Type 2. The FPA110-1FR can be pre-ap­plied to the decorative and then later bonded with heat and pressure to the composite panel.  

The FPA110-1FR will bond decorative films to crushed core panels at a bond line temperature of 113°C and pressures of 20 to 50 psi.  The FPA110-1FR can also be activated by radio frequency heating.

This film adhesive provides heat resistance of up to 105°C. Because this adhesive film is not thermosetting, no extended press times, temperatures or pressures are required for bonding. In addition, the decorative bonded with FPA110-1FR can be reheated and removed as needed for repair or replacement.
