Based on three years of experience using FAA-approved, chrome-free paint processes at its Lincoln, Neb., and Battle Creek, Mich. facilities, Duncan Aviation has updated, and made available on its website, its “Chrome-Free Aircraft Paint Systems” field guide.

The guide answers how and why aircraft paint processes are changing, what to look for when considering a provider, performance of these new products and waste disposal methods. Because chrome-free products have continued to improve year after year, more business aircraft MRO providers are considering the transition to chrome-free paint.

Duncan Aviation paint manager Doug Bohac said that unless customers ask for the chromate option, Duncan Aviation offers the “greener” chrome-free aircraft paint system when crafting a paint design and providing a paint quote. The paint team has received a positive response to this shift.
