Unique solutions for unique problems
Overhead air distribution ducts on Boeing 727, 737, 757 and 767 aircraft are prone to failure resulting in "whistles" or leaks. Fortunately, there is a fast repair solution that meets FAA flammability requirements. That solution is AkroFire's Duct Repair Kit. The AF201 Duct Repair Kit provides enough adhesive and tape to repair the largest diameter duct, or may be used for multiple smaller repairs. Best of all, once the repair is affected the problem is solved – forever!
Commercial airlines such as United and US Airways not only use the Duct Repair Kit on a regular basis but also were instrumental in its development.
For repair of damage to joints on overhead distribution ducts.
Meets FAA Vertical Burn Requirements
Akro's Duct Repair Kit incorporates proprietary fire retardant chemicals designed to meet the flammability requirements of FAR 25.853 (a), App. F., Part I, (a) 1 (ii), 12 Second Vertical Burn.
The AF201 kit contains all the materials required to complete the entire repair on the aircraft without disassembling the duct. Akro's quick setting adhesive for effective and timely repairs is packaged in a simple two-part, pre-measured pack with divider bar.
