AKZONOBEL Aerospace ECLIPSE (ECL-G) Gloss Exterior Polyurethane Top Coats SKU: AKZNBL-CTNG-PU-ECL-G

Most airplanes nowadays are painted in vibrant colors, with designs and logos that need to retain their "fresh" appearance till repaint despite their operation in  harsh weather and environmental conditions. The types of paint used on arcraft are enamel and epoxy. For more information about these 2 types of paints please refer to the Product Description section.

Most airplanes nowadays are painted in vibrant colors, with designs and logos that need to retain their "fresh" appearance till repaint despite their operation in  harsh weather and environmental conditions.

Most commercial aircraft repaints take place every four years (sometimes longer), often during a scheduled C- or D-check. The paint is not stripped during each cycle. Instead, they alternate between complete stripping and merely scuff-sanding the existing paint layer and applying a new topcoat.

The types of paint used on arcraft  are enamel and epoxy. Enamel paints are extremely durable and resistant to chemicals and severe weather conditions. They do not fade or oxidize easily when exposed. The varnishes used in these paints result in an instant and lasting shine when applied. They consist a low-cost option due to their lower prices compared to epoxy paints but still result in a professional look which lasts over time in rough flight conditions. They are also considered safer for the working personnel during painting as the sprayed paint on aircraft surfaces does not emit dangerous gases like epoxy paints and therefore less caution of workers' exposure is required. One extra advantages of using acrylic enamel is that the entire aircraft can be painted, including the metal parts, without extensive masking preparation.

Epoxy (polyurethane) paints are more durable  and adhere well to aircraft surfaces. These paints offer a much more flexible finish as they do not dry as hard as enamel paints and therefore they do not become brittle, crack or chip over the years. Although they are higher priced than enamels they feature  an even higher resistance to chemicals, a higher heat resistance and an effective electrical insulation, preventing a gradual loss of colour or brightness and oxidation over time and offering a superior protection. Therefore, they are often selected in cases where a higher corrosion resistance and a wear & tear resistance is desired. Single pack epoxies however will need to be overcoated using an appropriate topcoat when exposed to extreme outdoor conditions. For general purpose applications in less demanding environments, enamels are often the preferred choice.

Those most commonly encountered are the Boeing Color Coding system (BAC), the US Federal Standard 595 Color Management System (aka as SAE Aerospace Material Specification AMS-STD-595), used by the US Department of Defense to identify and specify colors for military and civilian products and RAL, a 4-digit European color coding system  admini­strated by the RAL Deutsches Institut für Güte­siche­rung und Kenn­zeich­nung in Germany. The first digit in RAL color code is a system code number (1: yellow, 2: orange, 3: red, 4: violet, 5: blue, 6: green, 7: grey, 8: brown and 9: white and black shades).
