EnduroSharp™ Instruction Manual
ENDUROSHARP™ TORLON® AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE TOOLS
The processes, techniques and instructions contained within this manual were developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Systems Support Division (AFRL/RXS) and the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI).
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!”

“For decades, aircraft maintainers have searched for a non-metallic sealant and coatings scraper that would hold an effective edge, but not pose a threat to aircraft structures, like aluminum and composite. They’ve tried sharpened acrylic, polycarbonate, phenolic, and fiber reinforced plastics of all kinds. Nothing has really worked, and often maintainers have resorted to sharpened putty knives, scribes, and utility blades. Finally, a non-metallic blade system comes along that actually works. The Torlon scraper system is like “The Holy Grail” of non-metallic scraper blades.
No toolbox for working with removal of coatings from composites and sensitive structures should be without them.”
