Abstract:

Variations in ambient temperatures affect the curing time of magnetic rubber replicas taken in the field for the non-destructive inspection of certain aircraft components. This can result in poor quality replicas which are unsuitable for inspection purposes. This report describes how the problem may be overcome by varying the quantities of catalyst added to the base material. Author
