3M™ Void Fillers, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Paste Adhesives and Light-Weight Polysulfide Sealants reduce aircraft weight, maximizing efficiency, minimizing costs and enhancing sustainability.
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 aircraft constructed with competitive materials. Subtracting weight with 3M fillers, pastes and sealants maximizes efficiency, minimizes costs and enhances sustainability.
