Surface Preparation and Primer Application: De-Oxidize Aluminum Surface

DeOxidizing Aluminum Surface

It's considered a best practice to use abrasives for deoxidizing the entire aircraft fuselage, and 3M delivers abrasives and personal protective equipment (PPE) that meet the challenge. Our abrasive discs and sheets are excellent for metal or composite sanding. Our 3M™ Cubitron™ II portfolio offers faster cut and longer life than other premium abrasives. Our aircraft OEM-approved Scotch-Brite™ discs, hand pads and sheets, power sanding tools and premium PPE help you get the job done quickly, efficiently and safely. And our selection of PPE includes a wide range of respiratory, eye and ear protection during the aircraft deoxidizing process.
