International business aviation marketing and services company Action Aviation signed an exclusive distribution agreement at EBACE with AirGlide for Aviation Shield, a new nano-technology coating that claims fuel-burn savings of around 4 percent through drag reduction. AirGlide said the nano-particles in its coating fill microscopic gaps and crevices in the aircraft’s skin surface, reducing drag by up to 40 percent. The advantages claimed for the coatings also include reduced carbon footprint, fewer cleaning and maintenance costs, protection against corrosion and erosion and reduced ice accretion.
