What is fay surface sealing?

Last Updated: 10th April, 2021

Faying surfaces are the contacting surfaces or faces of two similar or dissimilar materials placed in tight contact to form a joint. They are mating surfaces that contain a sealant in between them during any assembly process so that there is no gap or crevice left between them.

Likewise, what is a fay seal?

A method of sealing between two components includes applying and curing a layer of fay surface sealant to a first component. A layer of liquid shim is located between the second component and the layer of fay surface sealant thereby substantially filling the gap.

Furthermore, what is fillet sealing? Tanking Fillet Seal A high quality, cement-based, fast-setting mortar designed to create fillet joints at weak points such as the wall and floor junction. Fillet seals create a smooth transition between horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Also to know, what is meant by the term faying surface?

A faying surface is one of the surfaces that are in contact at a joint. Faying surfaces may be connected to each other by bolts or rivets, adhesives, welding, or soldering.

What is resistance welding process?

Electric resistance welding (ERW) is a welding process where metal parts in contact are permanently joined by heating them with an electric current, melting the metal at the joint. The electric current can be supplied to electrodes that also apply clamping pressure, or may be induced by an external magnetic field.

What is a slip critical bolt?

Slip-critical joint, from structural engineering, is a type of bolted structural steel connection which relies on friction between the two connected elements rather than bolt shear or bolt bearing to join two structural elements. The "turn of the nut" method is also widely used to achieve that state of friction.

What is a fillet bead of sealant?

When do you use a fillet bead? You use a fillet bead in a fillet joint, which is formed when two surfaces come together to form a right angle. Sealant is applied to this joint to join the two surfaces in a triangular shape.

How do you apply Quad sealant?

Application: Using a caulking gun, apply sealant with steady pressure, forcing the sealant into the joint. If the depth of the joint exceeds 3/8” (9.5 mm) the use of a backer rod is recommended. OSI QUAD will not pop or splatter and will dispense smoothly on extrusion from the cartridge.
