    • Aircraft Weight Reduction

      The less an airplane weighs, the less fuel it requires. And when fuel makes up nearly 30% of airline expenses, that’s an important equation. One that adds up pretty quickly when you think of the environmental implications. Planes constructed with 3M™ Void Fillers, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Paste Adhesives and Light Weight Polysulfide Sealants can weigh up to 1,000 pounds less than planes constructed with competing materials. Subtracting weight with 3M fillers, pastes and sealants maximises efficiency, minimises costs and enhances sustainability.
