Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings Releases New Exterior Coatings Color Card

Andover, Kan. – The newest color card from Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings debuts a wide variety of fresh color options. There are bold, new colors such as Firecracker Red, Chartreuse Green, and Summer Solistice; new additions of tans and grays specifically formatted for doorbands and steps; and two new factory-packaged whites. The colors are available as standard choices for all Sherwin-Williams exterior Aerospace coating lines, -- JetGlo®, Jet Glo EXPRESS™, Acry Glo® and the new SKYscapes™ topcoat system.

In addition to new colors, the color card has been redesigned to feature a larger legend that explains the Sherwin-Williams color numbering system, making it easier for customers to understand and use.

The 24 new colors expand the existing Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Color Tool System and are included as new inserts in the Exterior Solid Color Fan Deck and the Designer Color Book system. These new palette additions, as well as existing colors, are available in Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings’ wide variety of exterior aircraft finishes, designed to satisfy the needs of almost any coatings project:

•Jet Glo® Polyester Urethane delivers a high-level combination of DOI, gloss retention and color brilliance, making it the preferred coating for a premium level of appearance. It is well known for its superior resistance to chemicals, ultraviolet rays, fuel and abrasions -- qualities that enable Jet Glo to stand up to the toughest conditions.

•Jet Glo EXPRESS™ Polyester Urethane delivers the high-gloss appearance, performance and durability in a faster-curing, high-solids formulation. Competitively priced and available in a multitude of colors, it is quickly becoming the coating of choice for engineers, designers, painters and purchasing agents worldwide.

•Acry Glo® Acrylic Urethane, a two-component, acrylic, solid-color urethane, is as rugged as it is beautiful. It resists chipping and stands up to chemicals, salt, solvents and hydraulic fluid. In addition, it offers a quick-drying formula with easy application. Acry Glo is the high-quality choice for operators in the small aircraft and helicopter markets.

•SKYscapes™ Polyester Urethane is the latest Sherwin-Williams Aerospace exclusive polyester topcoat system. It is applied using a revolutionary basecoat/clearcoat process that cuts as much as 30 percent from the painting process, saving time and money.
