Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings announced its SKYscapes Next Generation exterior coatings basecoat/clearcoat system has been qualified by Textron Aviation for its Cessna, Beechcraft, and Hawker aircraft.
Including both solid and effect colors, this new qualification expands the relationship between Textron Aviation and Sherwin-Williams. Textron Aviation previously qualified, and continues to utilize, the Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Acry Glo and Jet Glo Express systems for use in both OEM and repaint settings.
“We are honored to expand our relationship with a distinguished manufacturer like Textron Aviation and its iconic aircraft brands,” says Molly K. Moses, Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings North America sales manager. “This additional qualification provides Textron Aviation’s customers with multiple options: they can continue to utilize a traditional, single stage system like Jet Glo Express or Acry Glo; or if they want to utilize a basecoat-clearcoat finish, Textron Aviation now offers SKYscapes Next Generation. Depending upon the complexity of the scheme and the customer’s preferences, this gives Textron Aviation an array of optimized solutions.”
Sherwin-Williams makes exterior coatings that deliver custom solutions for commercial, military, and general aviation aircraft, including a full range of specialized livery color options for an outstanding, durable finish. Its products and systems undergo stringent testing to demonstrate they deliver a lasting protective coating for any aircraft and have earned numerous AMS 3095 certification approvals.
