Urethane primer/sanding surfacer

Product From Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings

Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings now offers a urethane primer and sanding surfacer. It provides production time savings opportunities as it can double as either a traditional sanding surfacer or as a primer. MROs and paint shops can now use one product for two purposes and will see increased benefits because it dries twice as fast as traditional epoxy surfacer technology. This latest primer/surfacer is a high performance, corrosion inhibitive urethane primer that contains no hexavalent chromium. Offering outstanding sandability, it meets lower VOC levels versus comparable aerospace MRO products while still providing a very high square foot of coverage per gallon.

SKYscapes coating system

Product From Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings

SKYscapes, a new basecoat/clearcoat exterior paint system developed by Sherwin-Williams Aerospace, delivers faster processing time, more color and easier maintenance than similar products on the market. This allows aviation MRO facilities and their paint shops to augment production schedules and turnaround more paint jobs. The result is planes painted with SKYscapes can now get onto – and get out of - the shop and into air faster. The modified polyester topcoat is applied using an innovative basecoat-clearcoat process in which all colors are applied as a basecoat. After the basecoat dries, the entire surface of the aircraft is sprayed with a clearcoat finish. Color coat dry time is approximately two hours, compared to six to 10 hours for other systems. This allows shops to apply numerous colors in a single shift and move the aircraft more quickly through the painting cycle. The paint delivers consistent viscosity between toners and yields outstanding flow and leveling. The new paint system offers a longer recoat time of up to 72 hours, which means no sanding is required between coats. Less sanding means less time during the painting process. Also, baking between topcoat layers is not required. For more information call (888) 888-5593 or visit www.swaerospace.com.
