Sherwin-Williams Introduces SKYscapes GA Basecoat

Ideal for exterior painting on general aviation and helicopters that often require expedited production times, Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings presents the SKYscapes General Aviation (GA) Basecoat 855 Series – SG, SGE, SGM and SGP Colors. It is designed to deliver the maximum in appearance and productivity by delivering a consistent and colorful solid, mica or metallic finish.

SKYscapes GA Basecoat features fast dry times (approximately 60 – 90 DTT) that lead to improved productivity, an easy 6 to 1 to 2 mixing ratio, all while delivering excellent flow and leveling. After clearcoat, it provides a high gloss finish that can be easily cleaned, buffed and repaired.

Aircraft owners demand on-time delivery and the SKYscapes basecoat-clearcoat system can reduce paint-process time to help meet customer demand for aircraft turnaround. That’s because the SKYscapes system cures at ambient temperature in half the time of other single-stage systems. Professional aircraft painters now have the option of which Clearcoat to use with one of two SKYscapes Basecoats: the new General Aviation Clearcoat – CM0850CC1 for increased speed, or the existing SKYscapes Clearcoat – CM0850180 – for improved chemical and fluid resistance.
