3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-730 is a polysulfide fuselage sealant formulated for easy tooling. Our corrosion inhibitive, manganese dioxide cure product is highly resistant to aviation fuel and chemicals common to the aerospace industry. It provides an effective barrier against corrosion on aluminum and between dissimilar metals.
We engineered 3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-730 specifically for fuselage applications, where it offers a number of advantages and benefits compared to traditional sealants. For starters, it is corrosion inhibitive yet contains no added chromate, which may help you comply with chromate reduction initiatives and OSHA requirements. AC-730 maintains flexibility and bond strength on aluminum, and between dissimilar metals under extremes of temperature, weathering and stress. Designed for easy tooling, it has outstanding resistance to jet fuel, chemicals and petroleum products common throughout the aerospace industry.
3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-730 Class B is a two-component thixotropic paste. AC-730 Class B maintains flexibility throughout its service life. It is easily applied by extrusion, injection gun or spatula, and exhibits superb tooling properties. Our Class B version has no added solvents, which minimizes shrinkage to help reduce rework and improve processes.
3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-730 Class C is a flowable, fay surface material, easily applied by spatula, brush, roller or extrusion gun. It also maintains flexibility and bond strength on metal substrates under extremes of temperature, weathering, and stress.
Seals faying surfaces of mating parts
Seals joints from passage of liquid or air
Prevents corrosion and channeling leakage
