The US Army has received a Blackhawk main rotor blade protected with erosion-resistant coating system from Kaman Helicopters.

Kaman‘s erosion-resistant coating system significantly improves rotor blade life, while increasing aircraft availability and reducing maintenance requirements.

The coating system will provide erosion resistance to the leading edges of helicopter blades during routine operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Coated Blackhawk helicopter rotor blades operate effectively in rain, sand, gravel and icing conditions, and allow quick repair in the event of damage.

Development, manufacture and repair work of the composite rotor blades was carried out by Kama at its HeliworX subcontracting facility in Bloomfield, Connecticut.
