Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings has announced that 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 colours, this new qualification expands the relationship between Textron and Sherwin-Williams. Textron Aviation previously qualified, and continues to utilise, the Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Acry Glo and Jet Glo Express systems for use in both OEM and repaint settings.
“We are honoured to expand our relationship with a distinguished manufacturer like Textron Aviation and its iconic aircraft brands," says North America sales manager Molly Moses. “This additional qualification provides Textron Aviation's customers with multiple options; they can continue to utilise a traditional, single stage system like Jet Glo Express or Acry Glo, or if they want to utilise a basecoat-clearcoat finish, Textron now offers SKYscapes Next Generation. Depending upon the complexity of the scheme and the customer's preferences, this gives Textron Aviation an array of optimised solutions."
Sherwin-Williams makes exterior coatings that deliver custom solutions for commercial, military and general aviation aircraft, including a full range of specialised livery colour 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.
