DAPCO™ 2900 is a two-part, organo-modified silicone sealant with 500 ºF service temperature that can withstand 2000 ºF flame while providing adequate thermal insulation to substrates it is coated on. The product has good resistance to fluids found in the aviation environment, including phosphate ester hydraulic fluids and engine oils (MIL-L-7808, MIL-PRF-23699 HTS), and unlike conventional condensation curing silicone products will not degrade in these fluids at 150 ºF; it will retain its physical integrity after immersion in JRF Type VII, JP-4 and JET-A fuels. Additionally, DAPCO™ 2900 is formulated to be 'paint shop friendly' with no free silicone that can 'bleed out' of the cured material, in addition epoxy-based aerospace primers show excellent adhesion when applied to the sealant.
