For decades, aircraft maintenance personnel have searched for a non-metallic scraper tool or sealant remover tool that could hold an effective edge, but not damage aircraft structures, like aluminum and composite. From sharpened acrylic, polycarbonate, and fiber reinforced plastics, nothing worked.

That’s why Performance Plastics created the patented EnduroSharp® line of Torlon® Aircraft Maintenance Tools. These nonmetallic scraper tools hold a superior edge and are extremely durable for removing sealants, adhesives, and coatings. What’s more, maintenance personnel no longer have to resort to sharpened putty knives, scribes, and utility blades.

Endurosharp® is a line of thermoplastic tools specifically designed to safely remove coatings, boots, tapes, sealants, adhesives, gap fillers and caulking materials as well as pressure sensitive (PSA) adhesive and tape residue without damaging underlying metallic surfaces (i.e. steel, titanium, and aluminum) and nonmetallic (i.e. composites surfaces such as fiberglass, carbon/graphite), glass and ceramic surfaces. Our injection molded Torlon® tools provide significant performance benefits compared to other nonmetallic material removal tools.

We produce highly intricate mission critical parts utilizing high temperature and high strength thermoplastic resins, including glass and carbon fiber reinforced compounds, designed to function in critical and harsh environments. Sample projects include:

Our corporate culture embraces a “failure is not an option” attitude. It’s the way we are wired. We combine our complimentary knowledge, unique skill sets, intense passion and unwavering determination of our people with your team to get the job done.

We thrive on the challenge of doing what no one else has been able to do. Although we constantly push the limits of current high performance plastics materials and manufacturing methods, we take a pragmatic approach that meets your specifications and maximizes value while minimizing cost.

  • EnduroSharp® Surface Prep Kit

    Adhesively bonded nut plates are increasingly being utilized in the manufacture of aerospace structures, with extensive use in securing removable maintenance access panels. When a nut plate fails, it can take an excessive amount of time to replace, resulting in undesirable aircraft down-time. Performance Plastics, in partnership with various suppliers, has developed a suite of tools (EnduroSharp® Surface Prep Kit) to assist aircraft maintainers in quickly removing the residual adhesive/sealant on the aircraft structure (remnants from a failed nut plate) and preparing the surface of the aircraft structure and the new replacement nut plate for bonding.
