Posted 6 June 2017 · Add Comment

Socomore and the owners of Elixair have announced the signing of an agreement under which Socomore acquires the company and signs an exclusive worldwide license for the commercialisation of composite plastic scrapers that allow easy removal of adhesives and cured sealant residues.

Along with the Skywipes, the Skyscrapers line of products are complementary to Socomore pre-saturated wipes for the cleaning of adhesive tapes, adhesives and uncured sealants residues.

The license covers the following product ranges:
- SkyScrapers for the application of sealant and removal of sealant and adhesive tape residues
- SkyMill Revolution, a sharpening tool to clean and extend the SkyScrapers' life
- SkyEdgit, a portable grinding device for SkyScrapers usable directly at the operators' workstations.


Both the Skywipes and SkyScrapers (above) family of products are approved by most aerospace OEM (e.g. Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier). Socomore will promote and market these products with the support of 3M the historical distributor for the remainder of 2017. Socomore will take-over 3M's worldwide channel to market on 31st December, 2017 in order to  continue to  develop Elixair products' sales worldwide at main aerospace manufacturers and service providers, through its existing network of subsidiaries and partners around the Globe.
 
Leonard McLaughlin, Founding President of Elixair said: "The SkyMill Revolution by Elixair is a groundbreaking invention that has revolutionised the way that aerospace companies remove polysulphide and other aircraft sealants. We have a tremendous interest from all over the world for the SkyFamily range of products and look forward to working closely with Socomore to reach every aviation customer worldwide."
 
Frédéric Lescure, President of the Socomore Group said: "With the Elixair acquisition, we add a new brick to our business ecosystem to serve our customers and we participate in the consolidation and securing of the supply chain which is so critical for major aerospace companies."
