 - October 30, 2012, 1:10 PM

Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings (Booth No. 4547) has launched a new website to assist aircraft coatings specifiers and paint applicators with what it calls one of the most detailed online information sources in the aircraft coatings industry. The aerospace unit of paint giant Sherwin-Williams is demonstrating to convention-goers how the revamped website is easy to maneuver and provides more connectivity for visitors.

According to Sherwin-Williams, the website is intuitive to navigate, allowing direct search of specific market niches (general, business, commercial and military aviation), or product categories (interior, exterior coatings, primers, fillers, etc.). The new site features Skyscapes, Sherwin-Williams’s new basecoat/clearcoat exterior paint system, with two complete coating systems–including pretreatment, corrosion protective primer, topcoat and clearcoat–certified to SAE International’s Aerospace Material Specification 3095. Also featured in the products section is the Jet Glo Express polyurethane topcoat, optimized as a complete painting system for commercial airline fleets. Jet Glo Express is also qualified to numerous general aviation OEM specifications and is military aircraft-qualified to MIL-PRF-85285, Type I, Class H.

The new website links to a recently launched YouTube channel developed to acquaint manufacturing engineers and procurement executives, MRO professionals and painting crews with the newest Sherwinn-Williams products and processes. The channel offers videos on Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings features as well as step-by-step instructional videos of the aircraft painting and repair process. Also on the website is enhanced technical data, including information in other languages, regulatory documents, product listings, downloadable product flyers and sell sheets and an updated qualified products list.
