Helicopter Coatings Overview

Helicopters themselves are hard to do when
there’s not a lot of shops that repaint helicopters. That’s one reason, but also just the sheer
volume. If you can go paint a plane where you’re going
to have 50 or 60 gallons as opposed to a helicopter that are only maybe five to six, your volume
pricing is going to be at that plane. Helicopter, too, takes a lot of time because
you have to take it apart and put it back together. So a lot of people that are used to doing
a plane, they find that the helicopter takes longer and it kind of disrupts their flow
in the paint shop. We’ve been in the general aviation aerospace
market for quite a while. And helicopters kind of translate that well
into that market. We have a project right now. It’s Skyscapes G.A. that you can dry very
quickly. You can dry a tape on it and 60 to 90 minute. And if you put heat on it it can be done in
30 minutes. So we’re talking about painting a helicopter
which all the parts that are off and then some of them have been like some little crevices
and you have to open some door panels to get in there, dry time is very important. We also provide training. If you’ve never painted one before we can
have a tech help out there for you. It’s extremely easy to spray. And it comes in Micas in all its colors.

  1. Helicopter paint is tough, vibrations around rivets causes paints to fail, and the paint must be so light weight as every pound really matters, great work here.
