- Can be custom fit and applied using optimum bonding solutions
- Strong, resilient polyurethane backing helps protect surfaces from FOD damage
- Thick, lightweight matte black material also protects against UV, corrosion, erosion and abrasion
- Paintable tape can be color matched to blend paint schemes
- Resists punctures, tearing, abrasion and erosion
- Used in conjunction with a paste or structural adhesive
3M™ Polyurethane Protective Tape 8545 is a matte black polyurethane elastomer that forms a durable barrier and resists punctures, tearing, abrasion and erosion. We formulated this tape to also be resistant to UV light. This tape can be used in conjunction with a paste or structural adhesive.
Help prevent structural damage to helicopter rotor blades with minimal effect on blade track and balance
No Adhesive Necessary
Our goal in creating 3M™ Polyurethane Protective Tape 8545 is simple; protect vulnerable surfaces at a cost that returns a significantly higher value in return. That tape has military grade thickness designed to protect leading edge surfaces and rotor blades against costly FOD, erosion, corrosion and minor impact damage. This tape is conformable to most surfaces and can be painted or applied over painted surfaces. The 8545 uses our proven puncture, tear, abrasion and erosion-resistant polyurethane protective backing that also provides similar environmental damage-resistance properties.
