MT-Propeller natural composite blades feature a metal leading edge protection for best
The metal leading edge can be manufactured from stainless steel or optionally chemically from Nickel.
Due to the chemical production method of the nickel leading edge, it can be formed in any
shape and therefore the nickel leading edge extends in the outer blade tip area further to the
blade compared to the stainless steel leading edge.
Especially during reverse and ground operation, the blade errosion is basically eliminated due to the nickel leading edge shape.
Due to the production method, the weight is not affected and well within the manufacturing tolerances of an MT - blade.
