Systems & Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) is an Austin, TX-based small business specializing in R&D for the aerospace and defense sectors. SMRC's core competencies include manufacturing technology, nondestructive evaluation, advanced materials, and nanofuels. While at DMC, SMRC will be showcasing their QwikSeal and ISAS Kap technologies, both of which are aimed at revolutionizing the way sealant is applied to fasteners and fastening elements. QwikSeal fasteners are pre-sealed by a moisture curable sealant which is encapsulated with a moisture barrier using an automated application machine. The sealant remains viable until fastener installation during which the moisture barrier is removed from the system initiating cure. ISAS Kaps are molds designed to be filled with uncured sealant, and placed over backside fastener elements. Once the sealant has cured, the Kaps are removed leaving behind perfectly formed seals. Both of these technologies will be demonstrated at SMRC's booth.
