Product Details
  • High strength acrylic adhesive enables aggressive bond to protect rotor blades and air intake surfaces against erosion caused by Foreign Object Debris (FOD) such as rain and sand
  • Can be used to protect radomes with virtually no reduction in transmissivity
  • Custom molded for precise fit
  • Helps prevent surface damage and delamination
  • Reliable protection for leading edge metal and composite surfaces

From our leading edge to yours, 3M Aerospace offers a highly effective and economical solution to protect the vital surfaces of your aircraft from erosion and FOD. Our 3M™ Polyurethane Protective Boot SJ8545HS is thermoformed for a precise custom fit and protects its corresponding component against paint chipping, moisture, staining, and abrasion throughout the flight envelope.

We custom form the 3M™ Polyurethane Protective Boot SJ8545HS adhesive-backed polyurethane for exact-fitting protection. It is available in transparent or matte black and is paintable. This protective boot can be applied over unpainted or 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 erosion protection for your aircraft, from radomes to horizontal stabilizers and help keep these vulnerable components looking good between heavy maintenance intervals. Also, our uniquely formulated polyurethane does not significantly interfere with radar transmissivity. 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 boot sizes for general aviation, military, transport, cargo planes and commercial aircraft.

Adhesive, Backed by Decades of 3M Science
Our high-strength acrylic adhesive provides an aggressive bond to hold against extreme shear forces and protect rotor blades, air intake and rotor craft surfaces. 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.
