Zeke, it says exactly what it says. The ECF loses adhesion with the embedding resin, which flakes away and leaves the ECF exposed. This is clearly evident in the Qatar photos as well. You are arguing even against Airbus here, and I don't understand why, but won't argue any further because it's become a stupidity at this point.
No it does not say the words you claim.
It says cracking can lead to moisture to enter, when the aircraft cycles that water freezes (water expands as it freezes which is the mechanism which separates the mesh from the matrix). That leads to air getting to the mesh to further oxidase it. It does not say “ which flakes away and leaves the ECF exposed”, that is your unfounded editorial opinion.
The fix to this is to address the crack early to prevent further water ingress, that stops the cycle.
I am not going against Airbus at all, you have made several false claims :
1) there is a layer of composite above the mesh
2) there is a layer of resin above the mesh
3) ECF loses adhesion with the embedding resin, which flakes away
None of those comments are supported by any of the court documents, that is all your false opinion.
