Sherwin-Williams Announces 2016 Training Programs

Sherwin-Williams announced its new 2016 aerospace coatings training program schedule to further provide aerospace coatings painting professionals with the continuous training required to stay current on the most up-to-date aviation coatings products and application methods available.

Designed for both MRO and OEM instruction, the hands-on and classroom training includes applying new chrome hazard free primers and composite surfacer systems, to spraying the latest in technology-driven high-quality topcoats and clearcoats. The 2016 Aerospace Coatings Training Program schedule includes a series of two-day classes on:

All classes will be held on-site at the Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings Andover (Wichita) Kan. training facility.

This year’s training will focus on the traditional single-stage technology systems, such as the Jet Glo and Jet Glo Express coatings, as well as the latest basecoat/clearcoat exterior aerospace paint system, SKYscapes, that the company says delivers fast processing time, excellent color and gloss retention, and easy maintenance.

Training and mastering the SKYscapes paint system will allow aviation maintenance repair facilities and their paint shops to augment production schedules and turn around more paint jobs.

Also covered in the 2016 training sessions, is a section on Sherwin-Williams JetFlex, JetFlex WR and new JetFlex ELITE aircraft cabin coatings.

“New technicians can become better acquainted with our products and the best aerospace coatings application techniques, while seasoned professionals can take time to refine their skills in an actual shop setting,” says Julie Voisin, Sherwin-Williams Global product manager for Aerospace Coatings. “Our two-day training programs are designed for all levels of paint shop personnel. Our goal is to have every participant leave with inspiration and ideas to help them create the best paint jobs possible back at their own shops, on every plane, every time.”
