Products will be on display at the MRO Americas Aviation Week Show next month
Performance Plastics is pleased to announce two additions to its EnduroSharp® line of accessory tools: the EnduroSharp® Torlon® Adhesive Reamer (TAR) and Adhesive Cutter (TAC).
EnduroSharp® TAR tools are non-metallic, multi-fluted, straight-walled reamers. They are used to remove non-metallic debris such as cured sealants and adhesives from fastener and bushing holes in metallic or composite structures without damaging the structures. Available in four different sizes, the reamers have a hex drive mounting feature, allowing it to be used with low RPM battery-powered screwdrivers (200 rpm or less), ratcheting screwdrivers or the EnduroSharp® Ratcheting T-Handle with Keyless Chuck.
EnduroSharp® TAC tools are designed to be used with the standard (non-segmented) and tetherable (segmented) mandrels. They can also be used with electric and pneumatic drills rated at 600 RPM or less. TAC tools are supplied in EnduroSharp® surface preparation tool kits.
“These new EnduroSharp® tools are an important expansion of our line of aircraft maintenance tools,” said Rich Reed, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Performance Plastics has always been known for our injection molding expertise. The bottom-line advantage is that the customer can now count on us for our ability to solve all of their engineering challenges with our products and services.”
These new products will be on display at the MRO Americas Aviation Week Show April 9-11, 2019. Performance Plastics will be exhibiting in Booth 5117, in Building B, Halls 1-5 of the Georgia World Congress Center, in Atlanta, GA. Additionally, on display in the Performance Plastics’ booth will be the company’s complete 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.
