EnduroSharp™ Torlon® Aircraft Maintenance Tools
Endurosharp™ non-metallic tools are specifically designed to safely remove adhesives, sealants, caulk and other adhered materials without damaging the underlying surface. Made from Torlon® polyamide-imide resin, EnduroSharp™ tools are sharper and retain their edge longer than competing non-metallic options.
EnduroSharp™ tools can be used on fiber-reinforced composite, plastic, glass, ceramic and/or metal surfaces.
Developed under a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense, EnduroSharp™ tools have been tested and approved for use by the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and foreign military organizations for aircraft maintenance. They are now available for civilian use as well.
“In more than 25 years of aircraft maintenance experience in removing sealants, adhesives, and coatings I have never found a non-metallic hand scraper tool that holds up to the use. The EnduroSharp™ Torlon® scraper blades not only hold a superior edge, but are extremely durable. These scraper blades change the game in coating removal!”
