AkzoNobel's aerospace coatings facility in Dongguan, China gets Boeing's certification to color blend the company's Aerodur 3001 basecoat

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel's aerospace coatings facility in Dongguan, China, has been qualified by aircraft manufacturer Boeing to color blend the company's Aerodur 3001 basecoat.

The certification means the site has been certified by Boeing to blend AkzoNobel's industry-leading basecoat/clearcoat system, Aerodur 3001/3002, locally in China with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) approval.

The Dongguan facility is also now listed on Boeing's official QPL for BMS10-72 specification.
QPL approval status is an important milestone for the facility, which opened in 2017 to specifically serve the North and South Asian aviation market and deliver cutting-edge technologies faster and more reliably.

One of the key benefits of the innovative basecoat/clearcoat system is that it dries faster and retains its color and gloss significantly longer than single stage coatings. It also offers superior chemical and stain resistance, flexibility and weathering performance.

The Dongguan site has been open since December 2001, with the aerospace coatings facility being added as an expansion in early 2017.

"We're proud to receive this certification from Boeing," said Ron Fattal, AkzoNobel's key account manager for Boeing.

"Our customers demand the best in terms of both performance and aesthetics,” he added.
