This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) addresses the general requirements for data recording procedures, packaging, and storing of aerospace elastomeric seals and seal assemblies which include an elastomeric element prior to the seal being assembled into hardware components. The requirement for packaging is an integral part of the controlled storage procedure and provides a means of positive product identity from the time of manufacture to the time of assembly into a component.
