WARSAW, POLAND: PPG Industries’ new chrome-free aerospace primer coatings system has been chosen for LOT Polish Airlines (Polskie Linie Lotnicze LOT) for corrosion resistance.

It is eco-friendly and a preferred PPG topcoat for superior gloss and shine to repaint three Embraer E175 jets and a 737-400 aeroplane.

High-solids DESOPRIME 7065 chrome-free polyurethane primer applied over DesoprimeCFWP 7530 chrome-free wash primer pretreatment are designed to work together to inhibit corrosion. The LOT Polish Airlines aircraft also are being painted with high-solids DESOTHANE HS 8800 buffable topcoat by PPG that has outstanding colour and gloss retention, so they should maintain their appearance for years.

The complete PPG coatings system including wash primer pretreatment, polyurethane primer and the topcoat is qualified to SAE International’s Aerospace Material Specification 3095. The coatings system has levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) more than 60 percent lower than a standard system and reduced weight because coverage is achieved with less material. DesoprimeCFWP 7530 wash primer has good washability and promotes excellent adhesion for chrome-free Desoprime 7065 primer, which has resistance to fingerprints.

“LOT Polish Airlines likes the high gloss of Desothane HS 8800 topcoat, which they had used previously for their 85th-anniversary livery and to repaint other aircraft. We introduced them to the new PPG primer system because it is eco-friendly while affording exceptional corrosion resistance,” said Ralf Maubach, PPG sales manager, aerospace, Central and Eastern Europe.

“This new, innovative painting ordered by LOT Polish Airlines is not only environmentally friendly but also contributes to the efficiency and safety of paint shop workers. We are proud that the high quality of our work made LOT and PPG choose our company to perform this task,” added Wojciech Stradowski, acting workshop maintenance manager, LOTAMS.
