SBH Solutions Australia  custom-designed a high tech bonding solution for Boeing Aerostructures using their standard HHD drum heaters.  

Boeing Aerostructures approached SBH Solutions for an efficient solution to bond their composite/ aluminium wings together.  

Starting initially with a standard HHD drum heater, trials were carried out in the factory, which proved that the concept of one blanket laid flat would help cure the sealant bonding the composite parts of a wing together.  

A custom design specification was manufactured and delivered within three weeks following the trials.   

The bonding solution worked well and further units were subsequently delivered for the composite wings as well as the 787 rudder.
