In the composite repair industry quality of the overall repair often relates directly to the quality of the cure. The cure is directly affected by the temperature uniformity of the heat blanket. Thermal/heat mapping certification of the heater blanket is rapidly becoming the standard operating procedure for many repair facilities to optimize the cure process.
As an added value service, Tempco can certify that the heat blanket you order follows the guidelines established by the Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee (CACRC), SAE document ARP 5144 Section 7, which states specific recommendations for the “…handling, maintenance and thermal testing of heat blankets…”
The heater blanket certification also meets the requirements of Boeing document D6-56 273 “Qualification of Heat Blankets for Hot Bonding Composites.”
