to its Qualified Products List

Eclipse Aerospace is part of ONE Aviation™ aerospace company and is run by a team of industry pioneers dedicated to engineering the most compelling aircraft for the modern traveler.

The Eclipse 550 Jet:

  • The Eclipse 550 Jet is a redesigned, reengineered twin-engine aircraft from the company that continues to build personal jets
  • The Eclipse 550 has the high-tech features of aircraft costing millions more but is built using innovative techniques that drive quality up and manufacturing costs down
  • The SKYscapes GA system is also used on the Eclipse SE twin-engine jet, a factory-renewed Eclipse 500 which has been substantially upgraded and reconfigured to include nearly all new features introduced on the new Eclipse 550

Using SKYscapes GA Basecoat/Clearcoat System on Eclipse Aerospace

“We utilize the complete SKYscapes GA basecoat/clearcoat system on both our new aircraft production and our factory refurbished aircraft. The latter are repainted as trade-ins or purchased off the secondary market. In addition to complete “makeovers” for the interiors, they receive an entirely new paint job, and the Sherwin-Williams system makes them look spectacular,” said Alexis Artery, Ph. D., Vice President of Production for Eclipse Aerospace.

Ideal for exterior painting on general aviation and premium business aircraft that often require expedited production times, the Sherwin-Williams’ SKYscapes GA Basecoat 855 Series – SG, SGE, SGM and SGP colors – is designed to deliver the maximum in appearance and productivity by delivering a consistent and colorful solid, mica or metallic finish.

Delivering Excellent Flow and Leveling

SKYscapes GA Basecoat features fast dry times (approximately 60 – 90 minutes DTT) that lead to improved productivity, a simple mix ratio, all while delivering excellent flow and leveling.

After clearcoat, it provides a high gloss finish that can be easily cleaned, buffed and repaired. Other Sherwin-Williams products within the system utilized by Eclipse include:
  • CM0483787 Chrome Hazard Free Epoxy Primer for aluminum areas of the aircraft
  • CM0480922 Spread n' Spray Primer, CM0481030 Composite Primer and EP007 Fill
  • Bond® putty for composite areas preparation
  • CM0850CC1 SKYscapes General Aviation Clearcoat as the clearcoat
  • JetFlex® is used on the aircraft’s interior

Meeting the highest in OEM standards and qualifications, Sherwin-Williams provides innovative aerospace coatings designed to give all types of commercial, military and general aviation aircraft long-lasting coverage with increased durability. This gives aircraft more “inservice” time and allows for longer periods between paint jobs.
