"A study of the methods and practices used in manufacture and inspection of adhesive-bonded honeycomb structures."

An internal Lockheed document, although designed for publication, probably for vendors using their products. Sections include introduction, cutting and prefitting, cleaning and surface preparation, the layup area: priming, adhesives, assembly, curing, sealing and finishing, inspecting and testing, and an appendix (includes a reference section of other sources of information for the reader). Highly technical in some areas with closeup photographs, and oddly basic in others (one illustration shows 6 forms of adhesives, each with a crude image of powders, solids, pastes, liquids, etc). Other sections are quite practical with do's and don'ts of manufacturing (a fingerprint on the product is noted as reducing load carrying-ability by 70%).

A scarce publication with only 2 copies listed in OCLC as of this listing. Dated based on the last visible date in the references section.

Price: $175.00
