Atlanta-based CareJet Services International has debuted an appearance-enhancing polymer paint protection system that was developed by Dow Corning and Proguard Plus. Applied to new or older aircraft paint, it provides higher luster, easier washing and enhanced UV and contaminant protection. According to the company, the system eliminates the need for regular use of detergents, waxes and abrasives. The product, which was used initially on ocean-going luxury yachts, comes with a 12-month guarantee and optional warranty extensions to 48 months.
In a related development, Carejet Services announced that Jim Cannon, a former member of the NBAA’s board of directors, will head its aircraft-coating customer interface group. Under Cannon, the advisory board will have three members, each with experience in the care and maintenance of business and commercial aircraft. The board’s responsibilities will include sharing its knowledge of owner/operator maintenance and environmental and cost considerations, and recommending products, services and markets.
