Abstract:

An adhesive study was conducted to investigate methods or processes to enhance producibility of the quick doff hood for the M40 mask. The quick doff hood design uses taped seams. Variations of the taped seams alternative adhesives, different tape widths, and a number of adhesive coatings were investigated. The sample variations were subjected to adhesion, blocking, cold crack, and hydrostatic resistance testing. Test results are discussed in this report and indicate that some of the variations can be used to enhance producibility of the quick doff hood. Adhesive, M40 Mask, Quick doff hood
