Storage of Elastomer Seals and Seal Assemblies Which Include an Elastomer Element Prior to Hardware Assembly
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies the general requirements for data recording procedures, packaging, and storing of elastomeric seals and seal assemblies which include an elastomeric element prior to the seal being assembled into hardware components.
NOTE: The requirement for packaging is an integral part of the controlled storage procedure and provides a means of positive product identity from the time of manufacture to the time of assembly into a component.
There has been an aerospace industry need to convert ARP5316 to an Aerospace Standard because the current document has been used as a standard even though it is a Recommended Practice. This document satisifes this need.
