Hernon Manufacturing Receives Approval for ReAct 784 for IAI Use from Haas TCM
As a replacement for an obsolete adhesive, Hernon’s ReAct 784, a structural adhesive has been approved by Haas TCM for the IAI as a replacement for aviation applications
"Seeking an alternative adhesive type to replace the HYSOL 9446, which was declared by HYSOL as an obsolete type, we supplied our customer with a 25ml sample of ReAct 784," said Harry Arnon, President of Hernon Manufacturing. "Based on testing, quality reports providing performance data, and review of the TDS (technical data sheet), our structural adhesive was found to be an ideal replacement for aviation applications by Hass TCCM."
ReAct 784 is a 100% solids, room temperature cure, and versatile structural adhesive. Hernon has taken the excellent bond strength of Fusionbond structural adhesive and merged it with the simplicity of ReAct two-component, no-mix curing system to create ReAct 784. This formulation will offer rapid, high strength and high impact resistant bonds to a variety of substrates within minutes.
“We have been told that engineers have been seeking an alternative solution to bond painted aluminum parts to a composite for a year and a half,” added Arnon. “As far as we know, there is no other adhesive type that can fill this need in the aircraft industry.”
Designed for a wide variety of substrates, React 784 offers excellent temperature and chemical resistance. The two-component, no-mix system allows controlled assembly timing ideal for production and repair applications. Simply apply adhesive to one part and activator to other part and join the assembly. A structural bond will develop within minutes.
“ReAct 784 is a suitable replacement for HYSOL 9446 which is located in numerous aircraft maintenance manuals both civilian and military -- including Lockheed Martin and Boeing aricraft,” added Arnon. “We have already received our first order for this structural adhesive for aviation applications.”
