Corrosion, Erosion and FOD Management

3M™ Polyurethane Protective Tapes and Boots help reduce rain and sand erosion damage. Using 3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes provides protection that can significantly reduce FOD costs and extend service life.

Excellent Impact Protection
3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes and Boots applied over the aircraft belly, leading edges, and antennas provide an excellent barrier to FOD and abrasion damage.

Fast, Safe, and Easy Application
3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes and Boots have strength and body which allow them to be easily handled without tearing and do not contain hazardous chemicals. Application is achieved by removing a protective liner from the adhesive side of the tape and applying the tape directly onto the prepared surface.

Erosion Protection
3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes and Boots reduce maintenance costs by preventing erosion and corrosion caused by FOD.

Forms a Tough, Durable Barrier
3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes and Boots demonstrate outstanding results in a wide range of testing for UV stability, fluid resistance and overall performance. They provide a unique combination of high strength abrasion resistance and conformability necessary to maximize performance.

Superior Performance Over Polyester Film and Similar Materials
3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes and Boots have been designed and specified by commercial and military aircraft OEMs because of their superior performance over alternative materials and techniques previously used, including vinyl tapes, polyester films and other sealing materials.

Adhesion to structure
3M Polyurethane Protective Tapes and Boots form a continuous barrier that maintains excellent adhesion to the surface structure, including sealants and raised features.
