Our 3M™ SkyBlade™ by Elixair is used in conjunction with 3M™ SkyCarrier™ by Elixair for the effective removal of aerospace sealants and adhesives. SkyBlade™ has two cutting edges and can be reversed on the spot for more efficient processes. These double edge blades come in 2”, 4” or 6” widths to provide versatility.
The Plastic Solution
Depending on the model, we use either Ultem™ or Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) plastics in manufacturing the 3M™ SkyBlade™ by Elixair. Unlike most other amorphous thermoplastics, Ultem resins stay strong and resist stress. They also retain their strength and resist cracking when exposed to aircraft fluids, aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, acids and aqueous solutions. PEEK is a thermoplastic used extensively used in the aerospace, automotive and chemical process industries. The material is durable, rigid and strong and it resists a wide range of solvents. The Ultem blades are available in 2” and 4” and the PEEK blades come in 2”, 4” and 6”.
Tough Tasks, Smart Solutions
In tackling unique requirements of aircraft manufacture and maintenance, our 3M Sky Products by Elixair are a family of aviation tools and sealant and adhesive removers that help reduce turnaround times and costs. The precision engineered tools work sealants into challenging places such as seams, channels, corners and curves. The unique plastic materials also remove unwanted sealant and adhesive residue smoothly and cleanly and perform best when used in conjunction with SkyWash or SkyWipes. Elixair products are designed to be user friendly, employing the best known technologies to make the task of sealant and adhesive application and removal less labor intensive and time consuming.
