AeroPel NPL Applied for Erosion Protection on H-46 Sea Knight

Oceanit had the honor of applying AeroPel Nanocomposite Protective Layer (NPL) to the rotors of a retired Marine Corps H-46 Sea Knight helicopter. Oceanit’s NPL team is working with the National United States Armed Forces Museum, who own and maintain the helicopter, designated “Pedro 01,” to evaluate NPL’s ability to protect rotor surfaces from erosion damage.
