AIRCRAFT COATINGS AND PAINT STRIPPERS AND CLEANERS
Thousands of aircraft worldwide are decorated and protected by Desothane® HS topcoat. PPG’s global flagship coating, it is the only low-VOC topcoat approved by both Boeing and Airbus. Aircraft manufacturers, airlines and maintenance operations rely on PPG’s complete line of aircraft coatings from primers for composite and metallic airframes to topcoats in standard, metallic and mica colours. Innovative Selectively Strippable Systems combine long-term performance with efficient topcoat removal for repainting.
Eldorado maintenance chemicals are now produced by PPG. These well-known environmentally friendly products include paint and coating removers, US military approved products and interior and exterior aircraft cleaners.
TRANSPARENCIES AND WINDSHIELDS
More commercial, military and business aviation pilots fly behind our windshields than any other. Design capabilities include glass, acrylic and polycarbonate substrates with advanced-technology coatings and liners for specific performance characteristics, heating systems to meet flight requirements, edge attachments for load-carrying capabilities and interlayers that adhere structural plies. PPG advancements include Herculite® technology that revolutionized windshield weight and service life.
