Composite Prop Repair


The process depicted below is no longer used to repair carbon fiber propellers because several failures occurred. A new process has been developed that is much stronger and has eliminated failures. The new process is slower and more expensive but yields a stronger repair.

Here are three Fresh Breeze fiber props with tip damage
prop 1


The Fresh Breeze carbon fiber props are hollow. Foam is injected so the tip will maintain its shape during repair.

prop 2

The tip repair is almost completed. The tip is sanded to shape and is now ready for paint and balance.

prop 3
