Investigation of Whisker Formation on Tin Plated Conductors

1998-12-01
HISTORICAL
AIR5444
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) shall be limited to general information about tin whisker formation on tin plated conductors. It summarizes the mechanisms of metal whisker formation and describes possible conclusions as related to tin plated conductors. It also provides a number of reference documents that describes research and observations of the whisker phenomena, recommendations to prevent its formation and conclusions. The investigation by this task group of AE-8D was initiated by a request of the Naval Air Warfare Center, Indianapolis, Indiana, to determine if the phenomenon of tin whiskers is a problem in aerospace wire and cable.

Metal Clad Fibers for Electrical Shielding & Harness Overbraid

2002-06-06
CURRENT
AIR5464
Over the past decade several metal clad fibers and fabrics have been developed to provide aerospace vehicle designers with a conductive, lighter weight alternative to coated copper or steel for shielding and harness overbraids of electrical cables. Several of these candidates have been unable to provide the strength or thermal stability necessary for the aerospace environment. However, the aramid-based products have shown remarkable resistance to the rigorous environment of aerospace vehicles. Concurrent with these fiber developments, there have been changes in the structures of aerospace vehicles involving greater use of nonmetallic outer surfaces. This has resulted in a need for increased shielding of electrical cables which adds substantial weight to the vehicle. Thus, a lighter weight shielding material has become more critical to meet the performance requirements of the vehicle.

Plastic Tubing, Electrical Insulation, Irradiated Polyolefin, Clear, Very Flexible, Heat Shrinkable 2 to 1 Shrink Ratio

1980-07-01
HISTORICAL
AMS3588A
This specification covers an irradiated, thermally-stabilized, modified polyolefin plastic in the form of thin-wall, heat-shrinkable tubing with a low recovery temperature. This tubing has been used typically as a very flexible, electrical insulation tubing whose diameter can be reduced to a predetermined size by heating to 100 degrees C (212 degrees F) or higher, but usage is not limited to such applications. This tubing is stable for continuous exposure from -55 to +135 degrees C (-67 to +275 degrees F).
