“Our partnership with Boeing stands out in the industry and is a great source of pride for AkzoNobel,” said John Griffin, the company’s Aerospace Segment Director. “As we celebrate these major milestones together, we are thankful for the long-standing trust Boeing has put in our products and services and congratulate Boeing on the delivery of the 787th 787.”
He added that “AkzoNobel’s state-of-the-art Aerodur 3001/3002 remains the only base coat/clear coat paint system qualified to meet Boeing’s paint specifications and this is one of the reasons propelling AkzoNobel to the leadership position in the aerospace coatings market.”
The Aerodur system stands out for two main reasons – reduced application time and improved durability. This results in drastically reduced downtime. It also provides outstanding gloss and color retention, superior chemical and stain resistance, flexibility and weathering performance. Which explains why it has become a trend-setter in the aerospace industry. Airlines that once requested mono-coat systems now specify base coat/clear coat system.
Continued Griffin: “We are proud of this accomplishment and will continue to work with Boeing and our other airline customers to advance our state-of-the-art paint systems to ensure superior performance now and into the future.”
