PPG Aerospace has announced that Magnetic MRO has selected a variety of PPG aerospace coatings to complete a recent VIP aircraft repaint project for a private charter flights management company.

MRO Magnetic selected Embraer-approved PPG DESOPRIME HS CA7755BE epoxy primer, which provides excellent adhesion and corrosion resistance. The primer was used in combination with PPG DESOTHANE CA8000 system in five mica and metallic colours, which provide airlines with greater flexibility and choice for exterior livery systems. The Embraer LEGACY 600 aircraft was finished with Desothane HD 9008B0900D a buffable clearcoat.

“PPG’s application support centre (ASC) in Hamburg, Germany, worked closely with MRO Magnetic to provide technical support, paint samples and the blended coatings,” said Ralf Maubach, PPG sales manager, aerospace, Central and Eastern Europe.

“With five colours needed in a short time period, our ASC-Hamburg team worked quickly with team members from our Mojave, California, facility to provide the samples and blended paints in specific package sizes.”

The VIP aircraft’s repaint was completed in 16 days at Magnetic MRO’s Tallinn facility in Estonia.

“We selected PPG’s aerospace coatings for this project, as they are a perfect fit when it comes to the VIP market,” said Rihards Priedkalns, Magnetic MRO aircraft paint shop manager. “This is especially true of the high-gloss, buffable clearcoat, which has outstanding colour and gloss retention. We look forward to our ongoing collaboration with PPG.”

PPG’s global aerospace business offers coatings, sealants, transparencies, packaging and application systems, and transparent armour, as well as chemical management and other services.
