PPG Aerospace application support center in Japan expands for growing market

PPG Aerospace – PRC-DeSoto is meeting the needs of the growing Asian aerospace market with expanded capabilities to package sealants at its application support center in Handa City, Japan, south of Nagoya City.

The facility has received registration to SAE AS7202 and the Boeing D1-9000 quality standards.

Registration to AS7202 ensures sealant repacking meets the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program requirements of value-added distributors.

"We have served the Japanese aerospace market for nearly two decades with a facility in Tokyo for distribution of sealants and coatings," said John Sands, global business platform manager, aerospace sealants. "With the explosive growth in the last few years of Japan as a center for subcontractors to supply subassemblies for the world's major airframe manufacturers, we established an application support center that has premixed and frozen sealant packaging capabilities."

The application support center has added equipment to produce PRC seal caps, unique small caps molded from liquid PRC sealant that cures to a flexible shell, then is filled with more sealant and frozen to retard curing until the customer applies the seal cap over a fastener.

The Handa City application support center also is a Boeing-approved process source listed in Document D1-4426, which ensures PPG's processes conform to Boeing's quality standards, Sands said.

"The application support center is able to repackage our core Boeing specification products and deliver to customers in packaging designed for easy application without waste," he said.
