The Av-DEC QuadSeal sealing system was designed to create complete corrosion prevention seals on aircraft antennas and mating connectors. The sealing system consists of pre-cured polyurethane gaskets, Self-Leveling Green, StretchSeal polyurethane rolled sealant (PRS), and Thixoflex Black. These four sealing solutions have been applied individually on thousands of aircraft as corrosion inhibiting solutions. When used together, the system completely protects structures, assemblies, and surrounding surfaces from corrosion.
The Av-DEC QuadSeal sealing system also serves as an excellent maintenance, installation, and repair kit as it contains all the corrosion-prevention solutions an aircraft is likely to need. When used together, a complete environmental seal is formed that delivers the following benefits:
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and maintenance organizations can choose the best solution from available Av-DEC QuadSeal sealing systems. Choices include a system with either a non-conductive pre-cured polyurethane gasket with fiberglass, nylon, or polypropylene mesh, or a conductive pre-cured polyurethane gasket with aluminum mesh, depending on the customer's requirements. Advantages of the QuadSeal sealing system include:
The combination of four Av-DEC sealing solutions brings a versatility that no single sealant can offer on its own. An example of this versatility can be seen in the sealing of antennas and mating connectors. Connectors can be sealed with the Self-Leveling Green injectable, wire bundles can be wrapped with the StretchSeal PRS, and the pre-cured polyurethane gaskets can be used to seal the mating surfaces. Thixoflex Black can be applied as an aerodynamic seal around the outer edges of the antennas. The benefits of using the QuadSeal sealing system include:
