Restoration

  • To ensure a good repair of a blade LE, the erosion zone needs to be understood and prepared correctly

  • LE repair processes require the use of specialised tools and equipment in order to achieve the necessary quality.
  • Following pre-cleaning and drying, the blade leading edge must be stripped of all residual topcoat and filler materials to expose the underlying GRP surface. Removal of residual materials covering the GRP is critical to ensuring that a stable foundation is established for subsequent application of the repair.
