AkzoNobel coatings qualified by Chinese aircraft manufacturer

China's largest aircraft manufacturer, Xian Aircraft Corporation (XAC), has qualified two new products from AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings

The Eclipse® range of polyurethane topcoats, along with 10P20-44 epoxy primer, have met the demanding standards of XAC's new XMS 1622 and XMS 1623 specifications respectively.

XAC manufacture a range of different civilian and military aircraft, including the twin turbo prop Modern Ark 60 (MA60). The company also produces components for both Boeing and Airbus.

Working in close partnership with XAC and their coatings distributor in China, Argosy International, AkzoNobel has supplied Eclipse for many eye-catching and durable liveries on XAC aircraft now operating in the Asia Pacific region.

"We are proud of our strong and successful relationship with XAC," commented Robert Waddell, AkzoNobel Aerospace Coating's Technical Sales Director for the Asia Pacific region. "It has enabled us to develop and produce some really unusual and striking special effect colors and designs. We work in close co-operation from the initial idea stage right through to on-site technical support in XAC's state-of-the-art paint shop, where the company does all it's own coatings work."
