    3M Aerospace offers an effective and economical solution to protect vital surfaces of your aircraft from erosion and FOD. Our 3M™ Polyurethane Protective Boot SJ8641 is thermoformed for a custom fit and will protect its corresponding component against paint chipping, moisture, staining and abrasion throughout the flight envelope.

    We fabricate the 3M™ Polyurethane Protective Boot SJ8641 from tough polyurethane and pre-form it for exact-fitting, high impact protection. This protective boot is paintable and can be applied over painted surfaces and forms a protective barrier between vulnerable surfaces and damaging elements. These products perform equally well on metal and composite materials. Our boots are one of the most economical and effective solutions available to protect those high value assets that are subject to damage.

    Future Proof Your Aircraft
    3M™ Polyurethane Protective Boots provide excellent impact-erosion protection for your aircraft, from radomes to navigation light lenses and help keep these vulnerable components looking good between heavy maintenance intervals. We manufacture a complete line of polyurethane protective boots in a variety of shapes to custom fit hundreds of components and allow you to match specified paint scheme colors. We have over 500 boots sizes for general aviation, military, transport, cargo planes and commercial aircraft.

    Adhesive, Backed by Decades of 3M Science
    We use acrylic adhesive for its ability to wet out the surface for a strong bond. Acrylic adhesive also provides good aging and UV resistance. A strong, reliable bond combined with our resilient polyurethane material will help you realize significant savings on maintenance with this cost-effective solution to protect high-erosion surfaces and keep your aircraft looking their best.

    Protection Begins at the Surface
    Prevent paint and surface erosion, even on the most vulnerable leading edges of your aircraft such as radomes, wing tips and wing root fairings, horizontal stabilizer tips, tail fairings, spinners, landing gear components and more. Our li
