Depend® Adhesive Improves Plane Performance

Depend® Adhesive, stronger than the competition and easier to dispense.

“Vortex generators” are small strips of aluminum, which are bonded to an airplane wing to increase lift and control at slow speeds. The Beechcraft Baron, a twin-engine monoplane, was a prime target for such modifications, particularly because of its handling characteristics during one-engine failures.

Initially, 3M™ Epoxy 801 A & B was tried as part of the Kit, but it was difficult to mix, measure and handle. In addition, it didn’t stick, and final appearance was poor. The application is an excellent recommendation for the reliability of the Depend® No-Mix Adhesive and Activator System.
