AkzoNobel paints are making Airbus aircrafts more sustainable
Aerodur HS 2121 is part of AkzoNobel's latest generation decorative and selectively strippable system for aircraft exteriors.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel and Airbus have launched a new chromate-free exterior primer, product innovation aimed at making the aerospace industry more sustainable.

Newly qualified by Airbus and now included in the aircraft manufacturer’s specifications, Aerodur HS 2121 is part of AkzoNobel’s latest generation decorative and selectively strippable system for aircraft exteriors. In addition to being free from chromates, the new primer provides users with numerous performances, appearance and application benefits.

Designed to be applied at the final assembly stage to virtually all external aircraft surfaces, it offers increased adhesion without pre-treatment (also on rivets), improved corrosion performance and flexibility, and better visual coverage. It also has enhanced wetting properties, which means less primer needs to be applied, saving time and improving efficiency.

“We’re driven by innovation and are excited to offer customers a next generation product which has clear performance and sustainability benefits. It continues our proud track record of developing market-leading solutions and going beyond expectations to provide world class functionality, performance, efficiency and value,” said John Griffin, Managing Director of AkzoNobel’s Aerospace Coatings business.
