3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-735 is a quick-curing polysulfide fuselage sealant formulated for easy tooling. Our corrosion inhibitive, fast cure, low density, manganese dioxide cure product is one of the lightest sealants available and also highly resistant to aviation fuel. It provides an effective seal on metals, composites, organic coatings and between dissimilar metals.
AC-735 provides an alternative to traditional chromate-containing sealants
We engineered 3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-735 specifically for fuselage applications, where it offers a number of advantages and benefits compared to traditional sealants. For starters, it is corrosion inhibitive yet contains no added chromate, which may help you comply with chromate reduction initiatives and OSHA requirements. Its lighter weight formula, 25% lower density than traditional sealants, saves vital aircraft weight. AC-735 maintains flexibility and bond strength on aluminum, titanium, steel, stainless steel, composites and many coatings under extremes of temperature, weathering and stress. Designed for easy tooling, it has outstanding resistance to jet fuel, chemicals and petroleum products common throughout the aerospace industry.
3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-735 Class A is a pourable liquid easily applied by brush or roller. It quickly fills critical gaps and seals cracks for effective corrosion control.
3M™ Aerospace Sealant AC-735 Class B is a two-component thixotropic paste and is lighter in weight — 25% lower density than traditional sealants, weighing an average of 3—4 lbs. less per gallon. AC-735 maintains flexibility and bond strength on various substrates under extremes of temperature, weathering, and stress. It is easily applied by extrusion, injection gun or spatula, and exhibits superb tooling properties. Our Class B version has no added solvents, which minimizes shrinkage to help reduce rework and improve processes.
