Abstract : This report presents previous problem areas when using zinc as a terminal-pouring medium, information on the progress of the feasibility of using epoxy in arresting-gear-cable terminals. Epoxy resin has resulted in saving five hours total time to prepare a terminal; requires many less materials; does not require handling molten metal, high terminal temperatures, and hot fuming hydrochloric acid; and necessary instructions to personnel for the pouring of epoxy are not as complicated. Future plans include the use of a heater to obtain more uniform heat application and better temperature control, obtain recommendations from various epoxy manufacturers, and conduct further tests in order to completely evaluate epoxy resins for use in arresting-gear-cable terminals.
