Metal Bonding

Kaman Composite Structures offers a unique metal-to-metal bonding expertise to the aerospace market. We have a range of autoclaves and readily available capacity at our North American and European facilities, including in-house treatment facilities. We have received Nadcap approval for composite pre-preg manufacture and metal-to-metal bonding to AS 7118.

We produce, prepare and treat in-house metallic details, skins and honeycomb cores prior to bonding and assembly. Specific adhesives are procured from suppliers with recognized accreditations, and applied to the surfaces of the parts to be bonded. The assembly is then cured at the specified temperature and pressure, using one of the autoclaves at our facilities, prior to final assembly and finish paint.
