Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings has a complete coating system—including pretreatment, corrosion protective primer and topcoat—certified with SAE International's Aerospace Material Specification 3095 (AMS 3095) for airline exterior systems.

The new certification approves two of Sherwin-Williams' complete painting systems: Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings CMO483928 with traditional High Solids Chromated Epoxy Primer and and CMO481968 High Solids Chrome Free Epoxy Primer/Surfacer. Both systems are finished with Jet Glo Express Polyurethane topcoat for global aftermarket use as complete painting systems for commercial airline fleets.

"This certification expands Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings' presence worldwide in the commercial market," said J. Marc Taylor, Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings director of sales. "We have been one of the market leaders in painting a variety of aircraft in the general aviation market since the 1940s and have built a strong reputation on our service, technology and superior products."

More than 2,500 SAE Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS) are recognized throughout the aerospace community and other industries, including the U.S. Department of Defense, which has adopted more than 900 of these documents into its standards. These AMS specifications are procurement standards rather than design specifications. AMS 3095 covers high-gloss paints for use on civil aircraft.

According to Taylor, a quality paint job not only protects the plane, it also boosts an airline's brand image. "An attractive, well-kept fleet is an airline's best advertisement," he said. "High-quality coatings last longer, stay more vivid and offer easy maintenance and repair in comparison to lesser-quality products. All coating products and systems that receive AMS 3095 certification have undergone stringent testing and demonstrates that Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings systems will deliver a lasting protective coating for any aircraft in a commercial fleet."
