Input from others in the aerospace industry on these 2 compounds

Input from others in the aerospace industry on these 2 compounds

(OP)
While writing repair dispositions for composite aircraft for the most part I call out EA 9394 to fill in holes of various sizes that needed to be drilled out because of delamination's or whatever. This is considered a structural adhesive and does it's job well. I have been talking to a friend from another company and he tells me they use BMS5-92 for the same repairs with good results. Both of the aircraft we work on are carbon fiber.

I'm looking for input from others in the aerospace industry on these 2 compounds and would like to know if there are other maybe better options. Thanks for your time.

RE: Input from others in the aerospace industry on these 2 compounds

EA 9394 is the product name for for an adhesive made by Hysol (Henkel). BMS5-92 is a Boeing Material Spec. EA 9394 is qualified to BMS5-92, as are some other adhesives. You can generally use any qualified adhesive.
