Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Acry Glo Urethane has now been formulated with its Metallic HLG Acrylic Urethane topcoat finish for a cool, metallic finish not only for quick drying stripes on small aircraft and helicopters but as a metallic overall finish for general aviation equipment as well.
Acry Glo Acrylic Urethane is a multi-component topcoat that has been a proven performance coating in the aviation industry for more than 30 years. Acry Glo Urethane is quick drying, exhibits outstanding gloss and delivers gloss retention upon weathering. Its excellent buffing characteristics make it a top choice.
“We have received numerous requests to do metallic aircraft crowns, bellies or overall aircraft,” said Julie Voisin, Sherwin-Williams global marketing manager. “Acry Glo was designed to be fast and not initially intended to cover large surface areas. With the new revised Acry Glo HLG system, we can now offer designers and customers options.”
The new Acry Glo HLG metallic system involves a modified metallic color formula and is mixed differently than the traditional Acry Glo system to enable a longer application wet edge and dry times. Although mixed differently, the same, commonly used metallic colors are still available (i.e. Las Vegas Gold Metallic, Titanium, Ruby Metallic, etc.)
Providing versatile, proven performance, Acry Glo is a high-quality, rugged aerospace coating that offers outstanding durability with chip resistance that keeps equipment looking good even in extremely harsh conditions and has long-lasting design requirements.
Several clearcoat options are available to be used over the new Acry Glo HLG system including the Acry Glo Clearcoat CM0571080 and the new SKYscapes® General Aviation Clearcoat CM0855CC3.
