Content Spotlight: 3M Polyurethane Protective Boots

3M protective boot video

3M Aerospace supplies a wide range of pre-formed polyurethane protective tapes for use on aircraft radomes and structures. These ‘boots’ protect the surface from damage caused by moisture, UV light, wind, sand, rain, sleet, snow, and other airborne particles using a technology that contains no VOCs, and are fast and easy to apply.

The current range of 3M polyurethane protective boots available at Silmid cover Boeing, Airbus, Fokker, Bombardier, Embraer and more. For further information read our full Polyurethane Protective Boots guide.

The installation and subsequent removal of the 3M polyurethane protective boots is quick and easy, as can be seen in the installation video performed on an Airbus A320 radome.

Content Spotlight: Aircraft Interiors by 3M

3M Aerospace offer solutions for the manufacture and ongoing maintenance of aircraft cabin interiors. Their product portfolio covers a wide array of applications, including bonding, filling, potting and structural reinforcement across the interior.

3M low density, expandable, epoxy core splice adhesive films are designed to fill mismatched areas and gaps, splice honeycomb cores and finish edges of sandwich panels. These thermally expanding films are perfect for typical industry cure cycles of 120°C - 180°C.

Developed to be co-cured with structural adhesive films and composite prepregs, they save time in manufacturing by eliminating post-cure finishing processes.
