AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings has announced a new 250ml aerosol

A 2K aerosol provides users with high performance aerospace coatings in a convenient and easy-to-use package, minimizing waste and saving time normally spent on mixing and clean-up. "Customers were so pleased with the convenience and reduced waste of our full-size 400ml aerosols they requested a smaller version to further minimize waste," commented John Griffin, General Manager for the Americas. "The aerosol," continued John, "is the perfect touch-up tool, capable of producing a high quality finish and invisible repairs on special-effect mica colors. These products simplify and improve the quality of aircraft touch-ups, increase the longevity of a painted livery, and ultimately reduce the total cost of maintaining the appearance of a fleet."

For the military sector, both MIL-PRF-23377 and MIL-PRF-85285 materials are packaged in both sizes of the two-component aerosols and are approved by the US Navy. They are also listed in the US Navy's 01-1A-509 Corrosion Manual. The aerosol packaging is also endorsed by the US Air Force and is listed in their official website.

For the commercial sector, primers conforming to BMS 10-11 and 10-72, and topcoats conforming to BMS 10-60 and 10-72 are available in the convenient aerosol system.

A growing file of unsolicited customer testimonials bearing comments like 'a great time saver', 'sprays like a regular spray gun', 'no messy mixing' and 'grab and go' represent the general market view of this development. "The 2K aerosols are revolutionizing paint touch-up for the Aerospace market!" John concluded.
