The Analysis of Adhesive Residue Failure

Abstract: Adhesives have always been, and will continue to be, a crucial component of assembling flight hardware. Unfortunately, adhesives have a long standing history of being a source of costly contaminations. There are currently no existing documents that can aid a technician in discerning the proper adhesive/substrate combinations, nor the optimal solvent to use when removing adhesive residue. This project seeks to evaluate the performance of adhesive tapes on various flight hardware substrates in …
