Description of SKYSCRAPER (RE-SHARPENABLE) & TOOLS
The SkyScraper and Seat Track Scraper by Elixair are approved plastic (POM or ULTEM) scrapers used as tools in the removal of cured sealant and adhesives. The fluted SkyScraper can be re-sharpened multiple times using the SkyMill Revolution portable sharpening machine, making it extremely cost effective.
Available with an ergonomic SkyGrip handle, the SkyScraper is a proven cost effective and popular asset in the sealant removal process, and will not damage or scribe/scratch aircraft substrates or painted surfaces.
The SkyScraper is protected by patents and comes in a range of different sizes and varieties. Composed of different types of plastic, it can accommodate all working environments, including cleaning seat tracks with a specifically designed scraper.
