JCX coating is specifically focused on productivity improvement for MRO commercial airline application. Whether a commercial aircraft is in for regular maintenance or being serviced to reflect a livery’s updated brand look, a new paint job not only enhances a plane’s aesthetics, it also plays an important role in protecting the aircraft’s surfaces from wear, tear and corrosion.

The best commercial aircraft paint schemes must always look their best to symbolize their respective brands. This requires a durable coating system to provide crucial protection against corrosion and damage even in the most punishing environments.
