Lightweight design for aircraft, rail vehicle and container manufacture
For several decades now, bonding has been one of the most important joining techniques in aircraft manufacture. The specific reasons for this include the fact that bonds have lifetimes of up to 30 years, high resistance to dynamic loads and media and resistance to extreme, and sometimes very rapid, temperature changes, from sub-zero temperatures in the stratosphere to ground-level temperatures in desert climates.
The application of bonding technology in aircraft manufacture allows extremely lightweight design due to the consequent use of light metal alloys, fibre-reinforced plastics and so-called sandwich components.

Looking for a hook & loop fasteners that are PSA with very high bonding/adhesion capabilities on different material such as: Kydex, metal, fiberglass WPFPG (WOVEN PHENOLIC FIBERGLASS PREPREG 120 GLASS). It must be able to pass FLAMMABILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR 25.853-1 burn cert. A possibility is a contact cement, included 2 compounds that can be made into PSA. Any other info on any adhesive that meets my requirements is appreciated.
