New Coating System that cuts cycle times and Costs Launched At NBAA

SpecialChem / Oct 15, 2009

At NBAA 2009 AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings is launching a new base coat/clear coat paint system for the general aviation sector. The Alumigrip® 4400/4450 is an environmentally compliant coating system that reduces the time required to paint an aircraft by up to 40% and improves color and gloss retention.

Alumigrip® 4400/4450 is based on the latest high solids polyurethane technology and was developed to specifically meet the needs of corporate and general aviation customers where a high quality, long lasting, distinctive finish, is a top priority. The new Alumigrip® 4400/4450 base coat / clear coat system can be supplied in a very wide choice of colors, including solid colors and high-impact metallic finishes. It is also compatible with the Alumigrip® range of environmentally compliant primers, surfacers and topcoats:

Alumigrip® 4001 chromate free, corrosion inhibiting primer surfacer;

Alumigrip® 4101 chromate free, corrosion inhibiting primer;

Alumigrip® 4200 high solids buffable polyurethane topcoat;

Alumigrip® 10P8-11 corrosion inhibiting primer; and Alumigrip® 10P30-8 high solids epoxy sanding surfacer.

The Alumigrip® 4400 base dries to tape in just two hours at normal application conditions, significantly reducing the time required to apply multiple colors. New resin technology in the Alumigrip® 4450 clear coat offers owners and operators improved durability for a longer coating life.

Additional benefits of the two coat Alumigrip® 4400/4450 system are its superior 'hiding' qualities, excellent wet-edge performance, and a smooth, buffable finish that stands up extremely well to the effects of rain erosion and commercial hydraulic fluids (Hyjet IV ®, Skydrol ® 500B and Skydrol ® LD-4).
