  • Patent number: 8828538
    Abstract: Doped adhesive tape is used during the manufacture of aircraft, including positioning marks, covering orifices from debris, allowing locations to be marked. Any doped adhesive tape inadvertently left in sub-assemblies during the manufacturing process can be detected using backscatter X-ray inspection technology. Detection is facilitated in one embodiment by making the tape thicker, to produce an increased mass density, and in another embodiment by adding a dopant comprising an element that is readily detected by the backscatter X-ray technology. The element can be iodine, and can be incorporated into the backing layer or the adhesive layer of the tape during manufacturing. The use of both thicker tape and a dopant can be used in combination to facilitate detection. If the doped adhesive tape is detected after components are assembled using a backscatter X-ray inspection device, then the doped adhesive tape is removed.

    Abstract: A flame retardant patch for repairing a tear or hole in clothing or gear includes a flame resistant fabric and a pressure sensitive adhesive bonded to the fabric by hot melt lamination. The pressure sensitive adhesive contains halogenated flame retardant compounds. A release paper covers the pressure sensitive adhesive and is removed to allow application of the flame retardant patch to the clothing or other item being repaired. The patch is attached by applying pressure to the top fabric surface of the patch for approximately 45 seconds using the convex surface of a spoon-like object.
