AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings recently announced Boeing qualification of the Aerodur 3001/ 3002 Base Coat/Clear Coat system.
The newly approved Aerodur Base Coat/Clear Coat system is qualified by Boeing to both the BMS 10-72, Type 10 and BMS 10-125, Type 4 specifications and is applicable for use on all Boeing legacy models (777, 747, 737, 767) under BMS 10-72 as well as the Hybrid Laminar Flow areas of 787-9 model aircraft per BMS 10-125.
To date, Aerodur 3001/3002 Base Coat/Clear Coat has been applied to well over three hundred new and repainted aircraft.
Aerodur 3001/3002 Base Coat/Clear Coat has been developed with a focus on reducing drying times and bringing operational efficiency to the paint shop. The fast dry to tape time and ease of application has demonstrated paint cycle time reductions of up to 30 percent. Data gathered on aircraft flying with the durable Aerodur 3001/3002 system since 2008 also demonstrate the outstanding gloss and color retention of the cutting edge paint system.
