Airbus qualifies AkzoNobel base coat and clear coat system

AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings announced the qualification at Airbus of their Aerobase base coat and clear coat system.

The Aerobase base coat and Aviox clear coat UVR system has been qualified successfully at Airbus, according to specification AIMS 04.04.033 and AIMS 04.04.037.

In addition to the standard AIMS 04.04.033 base coat/clear coat system specification, AIMS 04.04.037 includes a selectively removable system (SRS). SRS incorporates an extra sealer coat between primer and base coat which allows the selective removal of only the base coat/clear coat system in preparation for repainting. This avoids the need to reapply the primer and so results in further time and cost savings during maintenance of the aircraft.

With a focus on sustainable coatings, cutting drying times and saving costs by shortening the application process, Aerobase offers a high quality finish and reduces paint usage meaning it is an efficient and environmentally progressive paint solution. The paint system has been developed in line with one of Airbus’ key objectives to produce aircraft that are friendlier to the environment and more eco-efficient.

AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings’ Aerobase system only requires one coat per color and one layer of clear coat, resulting in reduced paint usage. This, coupled with a dramatically reduced drying time, which helps to reduce energy consumption and  labor costs, allow the aircraft to leave the paint facility with a good looking and durable decorative finish.
