SAE Adhesive Standards

Adhesives standards from SAE International (SAE) are primarily concerned with the sealing and joining of automotive and aerospace materials. These standards also address the specifications and recommended practices for sealing and adhesive processes. One example of this is the sealing of a windshield on a car or plane.

SAE Aerospace Adhesive Standards

Aerospace adhesive standards are applicable to the use of adhesive and sealant materials in aerospace vehicles. These standards address the preparation of sealant material specifications and aerospace recommended practices for sealing processes and related activities. For example: the sealing of integral fuel tanks. SAE International (SAE) has several technical committees (.doc download) that contribute to the development of aerospace adhesive standards.
