Duncan Aviation added an upgraded hydraulic Skydrol test bench to expand capacity and capabilities for large aircraft and to move in-house work that had been outsourced. “The addition will increase the efficiency of our component capabilities for landing-gear projects and add more than 100 part numbers to Duncan Aviation’s hydraulic support team, especially in the Challenger and Global markets,” said Marty Lincoln, accessories manager at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Neb., location.
Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings (Booth No. 4547), located in Andover, Kan., introduced several new products during NBAA’12. Its new urethane primer and sanding surfacer (CM0481827) can double as either a traditional sanding surfacer or as a primer. MROs and paint shops can now use one product for two purposes. And the product dries twice as fast as traditional epoxy surfacer technologies. The corrosion-inhibitive urethane primer is also chromate hazard-free and is intended for use on all aircraft.
