Quick Skive Removal Tools

Quick Skive Removal Tools

Specially-designed tools for removing materials from fragile, scratch-prone surfaces

Quick Skive Removal Tools consist of various hand tools and power tools with ergonomically-designed handles that use specially-engineered, nonmetallic blades, gap blades, and gap bits specifically designed for removing materials from fragile, scratch-prone surfaces. The blade and bit materials and angles were originally designed for small area removal of stubborn stealth materials and gap fillers from aircraft fuselages and components for on-and off-aircraft repair applications.

Quick Skive Removal Tools have multiple applications for aviation and industry, allowing for outstanding results when a “worker-friendly” heat/skive process is used directing a heat gun or other heat source on the targeted surface, then skiving off the heated materials.


  • Enables faster rate of material removal for repairs
  • Allows for simple one-person operation
  • Avoids damage to base primer, substrate, or metal treatment
  • Prevents secondary waste
  • Eliminates dust residue

Remove specialty materials, gap fillers, and sealants from fuselages, access panels, and fuel tanks without damaging the underlying primer coating or the substrates. Approved for use on U.S. Air Force (USAF) military aircraft.

Clean sealants and fillers without scratching steel, aluminum, fiberglass, composite, glass, and other delicate surfaces.

NOTE: Quick Skive Removal Tools are only to be used by trained professionals with adequate aviation or industrial experience and in accordance with the safety guidelines.
