Masking and Cleaning of Epoxy and Polyester Matrix Thermosetting Composite Materials

2020-02-28
WIP
ARP4916A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes methods of masking and cleaning commercial aircraft, epoxy and polyester matrix, composite parts prior to their entry into the composites shop, masking and cleaning of on-wing repair areas in preparation for carrying out repairs and wipe cleaning during repair and prior to bonding. It this document is used for the masking or cleaning of materials other than epoxy and polyester matrix thermosetting composite materials, the fitness for this purpose must be determined by the user.

The methods of masking and cleaning described in this document have specific limited application and are not interchangeable. The methods shall only be used when specified in an approved repair procedure or with the agreement of the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or regulatory authority.

Basic Composite Repair Technician Certification Standard

2014-02-13
HISTORICAL
ARP6262
It is recognized that the structural integrity of repaired composite structures depends upon the capabilities of the individuals who are responsible for performing the repairs. This document is intended to address repairs of composite structure regardless of the type of structure such as marine, wind turbine, automotive, aircraft, or other applications. This certification standard establishes the minimum requirements for training, examining, and certifying composite structure repair personnel. It establishes criteria for the certification of personnel requiring appropriate knowledge of the technical principles underlying the composite structural repairs they perform. Persons certified under this document may be eligible for licensing or certification/ qualification by an appropriate authority, in addition to this industry accepted basic composite repair technician certification.

Maintenance Life Cycle Cost Model

2010-03-22
CURRENT
AIR5416
This document describes a life cycle cost model for commercial aircraft composite structure. The term life cycle cost used herein, refers to the airline costs for maintenance, spares support, fuel, repair material and labor associated with composites after introduction into service and throughout its useful life. This document contains the equations that can be programmed into software which is used to estimate the total cost of ownership aircraft, including structure. Modification costs and operating costs are estimated over a specified life (any period up to 30 years). Modification costs include spares holding, training, support equipment, and other system related costs. Annual operating costs include: Schedule interruption, fuel, spares, insurance, and maintenance. Maintenance costs are separated by scheduled maintenance or unscheduled damage, or can by grouped into the typical organizations of line, shop, and hangar maintenance.

DRYING OF THERMOSETTING COMPOSITE MATERIALS

1996-08-01
CURRENT
ARP4977
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes standard methods for drying commercial aircraft composite structures prior to repair and gives general guidelines on use and applicability. It addresses the removal of liquids that have collected inside the structures through open damage, microcracks, or porosity and the removal of absorbed moisture from the composite material. The methods described in this document shall only be used when specified in an approved repair document or with the agreement of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or regulatory authority. If this document is used for the drying of materials other than thermosetting composite materials, the fitness for this purpose must be determined by the user.
