AkzoNobel coatings used in Wizz Air’s 100th aircraft

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel NV said that its high performing exterior topcoat systems are used on the 100th aircraft of Wizz Air.

The two companies have enjoyed a long partnership since 2003 when the airline was founded. Wizz Air specifies AkzoNobel coatings systems for new Airbus aircraft deliveries and for maintenance and repaint work. The latest generation and highly durable base coat clear coat system (Aerobase + Aviox Clearcoat UVR) are now keeping the aircraft in Wizz Air’s fleet sky-ready.

AkzoNobel has not only developed but pioneered, many of the coatings technologies used in the modern aerospace industry. This includes waterborne coatings, base coat clear coat systems, high solids/low VOC coatings, selectively removable systems, special effects coatings, chrome-free systems and other innovative solutions.

The company’s recent acquisition of Disa Technology has also allowed AkzoNobel to expand its product portfolio to include film technology used on aircraft.

“We would like to congratulate Wizz Air on growing their fleet and achieving this milestone. We’ve built a strong relationship with the team at Wizz Air, and we feel proud that they see our products and services playing a part in their success. We look forward to what comes next,” said John Griffin, director of AkzoNobel’s aerospace coatings business.

“Reaching a fleet of 100 aircraft is a remarkable achievement for us and we are happy to have AkzoNobel as our long-term valued partner alongside. As we aim to double our fleet in the coming years, we are looking forward to our fruitful collaboration,” added Sorina Ratz, Wizz Air’s acting head of corporate communications.
