PPG Aerospace Coatings Take Flight on First Airbus A380

While the world watched the first A380 airplane successfully complete its first flight earlier this year, the PPG Aerospace–PRC-DeSoto coatings staff watched closely too as the flight marked a new livery that they helped create. The A380 was coated with aerospace primers and Desothane HS CA 8000 high-solids polyurethane topcoat.
According to Alan Schoeder, PPG global segment manager, commercial aerospace coatings, the new colors were created for Airbus by PPG at its Le Havre, France, aerospace coatings laboratory and Hamburg, Germany application support center. Desothane HS high-solids topcoat enabled Airbus to achieve the coverage it needed with approximately 100 fewer gallons of paint than would have been used with conventional-solids topcoats.
PPG said 250 gallons of its primer and high-solids topcoat were used to paint the fuselage and vertical fin of the A380 airplane.
