DAPCO™ 2100 is an adhesive, solvent free, thixotropic silicone paste. DAPCO™ 2100 is most commonly used as a coating, sealant, or filleting material in the construction, repair and maintenance of all types of aircraft. The product can be applied using a variety of methods and is especially useful where fire resistance, exposure to phosphate ester fluids, and/or exposure to extreme temperatures -65 ºF (-54 ºC) to 400 ºF (204 ºC) are major considerations. The product can also be used as an insulative and/or ablative heat shield. The product is available in kit sizes of 2.5 oz and 6 oz injection kit style tubes.

Applications

Applying

N/A The substrate must be free from contamination, i.e. dirt, oil grease, etc. Clean the surface by wiping with a suitable solvent/cleaning agent and dry thoroughly. Handling strength is achieved in 24 hours at 72 ºF/25 ºC (loads on the product should be should be limited until full cure is achieved).

Curing

N/A DAPCO™ 2100 is generally cured at ambient temperatures above 55 ºF (13 ºC). Moisture helps develop final properties (a relative humidity ranging between 30-70% is preferred). Optimum physical properties are developed when the product is cured a minimum of seven days for sealing applications, and 14 days for faying surface applications at 72 ºF (22 ºC) and 50% R.H.

Cleanup

N/A Before the material has cured, the excess may be removed using DAPCO™ 2000 diluent.

Storage and Handling

Storage and Handling

N/A Shelf life: 6 months from mix/fill date at or below 80 ºF/27 ºC
Keep in unopened foil bags.
