AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings Receives AMS 3095A Qualification for Direct to Metal Paint System

Published on 2013-04-18. Author : SpecialChem

AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings has reported qualification to Aerospace Material Specification AMS 3095A of a Direct to Metal (DTM), Base Coat/Clear Coat system.

A Direct to Metal system eliminates the need to use any kind of metal pre-treatment such as Alodine, Solgel or Wash primer technologies. The primer is applied directly to the clean Scotch-Brited substrate. The primer itself provides the necessary adhesion and corrosion resistance to meet the stringent specification requirements.

The DTM system, composed of Aerodur LV 2114 and Aerobase Base Coat/Clear Coat, is the very first of its kind to receive the AMS 3095A qualification, passing the stringent testing of the SAE aerospace standards for high gloss exterior paint systems for commercial fleet maintenance.

The AMS 3095A qualification marks a new opportunity for customers to improve the efficiency of aircraft maintenance. The DTM paint system eliminates mixed fleet complexities and can be applied on any type of commercial aircraft, whatever the climate and anywhere in the world. The paint system provides easy strip-ability within the typical MRO requirements.

Whilst the variability of aircraft appearance within a fleet shall be an issue of the past, AkzoNobel's state-of-the-art AMS3095A DTM paint solution offers simplicity and economy for airlines and MRO's.

Key factors demonstrating the benefits of the DTM system are reduction in process times, resulting in shorter AOG times, simplicity and reduced maintenance costs.

The environmentally progressive Aerobase Base Coat/Clear Coat system has earned AkzoNobel high praise from aircraft painters for reliability, ease of use, reduced drying times and superb gloss.

The AMS 3095A qualification for DTM is considered a worldwide standard of excellence and is globally endorsed by the major OEMs.
