Naftoseal MC-780 C-1/3 Lightweight Fuel Tank & Fuselage Sealant
Naftoseal MC-780 Class C is a two-component, manganese-dioxide cured polysulfide polymer system with reduced density providing excellent fuel tank and fuselage seals. The C-1/3 denotes that this product has a 20 minute application time.
- Product Type Fuel Tank Sealant
It is designed for interfay surface sealing and wet riveting of fuselage components and has outstanding resistance to aviation gasoline and jet fuel, as well as resistance to the chemicals and petroleum products used in the aircraft industry.
Additionally, it was developed for a service temperature between -55 °C (-67 °F) to +130 °C (+ 266 °F) and withstand a shortterm temperature of +182 °C (+360 °F).
Naftoseal MC-780 Class C maintains its flexibility and bond strength on most metal substrates like aluminum, stainless steel, steel, titanium, composite and many coatings under extremes of temperature, weathering and stress.
Naftoseal MC-780 Class C combines low viscosity, for ease of mixing, with a high thixotropy giving good application characteristics. It can be effectively applied by extrusion, by injection gun, or by using a roller coating technique. The low viscosity means that it is easily squeezed from interfaying surfaces during the assembly process and it has a unique self-filleting characteristic.
The curing time may be reduced considerably by increasing the temperature (up to 60°C or 140°F max).
To obtain good adhesion, clean surfaces with appropriate cleaners (e.g. Chemetall's Ardrox products like Ardrox 5529 or Ardrox 5575) to remove dirt, grease and processing oils just prior to sealant application. Use lint-free rags or paper towels that are free of oil. Always pour cleaner on the cloth to avoid contamination of the cleaner supply. Clean one small area at a time, quickly wiping it dry before the cleaner's solvent evaporates to prevent redeposition of oil, wax or other contaminants. PUR and EP topcoats as well as composite components should be pre-treated by the Naftoseal MC-115 Adhesion Promoter.
