  • Repair to honeycomb sandwich part, with both skins and core damage, using prepreg materials. This repair can use either single sided or double sided heating method. The repair is to be performed from one side access. The repair can be either a one or two stage repair method. The cure cycle heat application can be any of the listed methods in this document.
  • Repair to the edge band of honeycomb sandwich part, the damage is to extend into the core and have ply drop offs. This repair can use either single sided or double sided heating methods. The repair can use either a one or two stage repair method. The cure cycle heat application can be any of the listed methods in this document.
  • Repair to a solid laminate part with a minimum of six plies, using wet layup or prepreg materials. This repair can use either single sided or double sided heating method. The cure cycle heat application can be any of the listed methods in this document.
  • Repair to honeycomb sandwich part, with both skins and core damage, using wet layup or prepreg materials. This repair can use either single sided or double sided heating method. The repair is to be performed from one side access. The repair can be either a one or two stage repair method. The cure cycle heat application can be any of the listed methods in this document.
  • Vacuum bagging using non-autoclave bleeder/breather schedules. Installation of pleats to minimize bridging in high-angle core transitions. Vacuum debulking, leak checking, and identification of other potential bagging problems.
