The prevention of corrosion in aircraft includes ensuring floor beams and floorboard gaps and fasteners are properly sealed during installation, maintenance, and repair activities. The Av-DEC floorboard sealing system combines sealing products engineered to protect floor beams, seat tracks, and other irregular surfaces from corrosion. An application of Av-DEC injectable sealants prevents moisture from seeping from the aircraft cabin down onto aircraft structural floor beams. With proper application, the floorboard sealing system will form a complete seal that locks out moisture, water, and liquid spills to keep aircraft floor beams corrosion at bay.
The Av-DEC Floorboard Sealing System consists of sealants designed with aircraft structural protection in mind. Every sealing product in the system delivers durable seals with extensive life spans. Apply HI-TAK PRS, HI-TAK TufSeal, or HI-TAK StructureSeal to protect floor beams even in extreme conditions. Fill seat tracks to overflowing with Self-Leveling Green to protect the inner cavity and upper surface of seat tracks. Self-Leveling Green can be contained by utilizing Thixoflex Gray or Thixoflex Orange to form dams at both ends of the seat track. Sealing floorboards with this Av-DEC Floorboard Sealing System results in the following benefits:
In passenger aircraft, the cost of corrosion on aircraft structural floor beams presents aircraft operators with an challenging problem. In addition, floorboard sealing products should be non-hazardous and exhibit quick gel times for the short-notice maintenance and repair tasks that inevitably come up. Understanding these challenges, Av-DEC engineers combined several unique sealing products to handle the requirements of aircraft floorboards. The Floorboard sealing system consists of products made from non-hazardous materials such as polyurethane rolled sealants (PRS), sprayable sealants, and injectable sealants. With every application, the following benefits apply:
Unique corrosion challenges require specific sealing systems in order to completely protect floorboards and complex or irregular structures in cargo bay areas from corrosion. Av-DEC engineers can design custom Floorboard Sealing Systems to meet these specific challenges. The custom combination can deliver diverse benefits depending on specific applications and needs. To combine multiple sealing solutions to prevent corrosion, as well as fill voids, protect areas susceptible to excess traffic, and dampen vibration and noise, contact Av-DEC for assistance with choosing the optimum floorboard sealing system.
