AkzoNobel at MRO Americas: to Present Exterior Paint Systems & Cabin Coatings for Aircraft

Published on 2013-04-11. Author : SpecialChem

MRO Americas will be the platform for AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings to present its latest high gloss exterior paint systems and cabin coatings for aircraft.

The exterior maintenance systems meet AMS 3095A and allow airlines and paint facilities to use one, unique paint system for any type of aircraft. Customized to the individual needs of the paint facility, the preferred paint solution provides customers, managing a mixed fleet of aircraft, maximum benefit with minimum change. It removes mixed fleet complexity by bringing one decorative system to airlines, facilitating the maintenance of the entire fleet and eliminating variability.


In line with AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings' commitment to offer environmentally progressive solutions, a total chrome-free option is expected to receive AMS 3095A qualification soon. The chrome-free system option combines the use of Metaflex SP 1050 surface preparation with a chrome-free primer and a topcoat system.

Cost effective

Use of the chrome-free Metaflex SP 1050 surface preparation replaces the use of chromate conversion coatings, wash primers and other traditional pre-treatment processes. Reducing paint preparation time and costs, the water based pretreatment is an easy and safe process that does not require expensive equipment.

The combination of Metaflex SP 1050 with the AkzoNobel chrome-free primer and decorative system offer superior adhesion, system durability and outstanding performance. To suit the individual needs of the paint facility, chromate paint system options are available as well.

Application and maintenance costs can be further reduced by choosing the reliable Aerobase and Aerodur Base Coat/Clear Coat decorative coating option. Both provide a top quality finish with faster turnaround times, superb gloss/color retention and extended durability.

Aerofine -- interior coating solutions

AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings shall also be demonstrating their Aerofine range of aircraft interior coatings, created for the maintenance and refurbishment of aircraft internal cabin surfaces. The Aerofine brand represents consistent durability, ease of application and reliable performance at a fair price. The environmentally progressive cabin coatings and aircraft exterior coatings offer a one stop paint solution for aircraft interior and exterior.
