Selectively Strippable Coatings System

Aircraft are meant to fly, not sit in a hangar. The “down-time” required to repaint an aircraft is costly. PPG Aerospace selectively strippable system (SSS) shortens the repaint time so an aircraft can return to service days earlier than with a conventional exterior coatings system.

When using an intermediate coat between the primer and topcoat, it is necessary to strip only the topcoat and intermediate coat back tot he underlying primer. The aircraft is then repainted by re-application of the intermediate coat and finished with a compatible topcoat. This means there is no need to apply a conversion coating, re-prime, or re-seal. As a result the down-time can be reduced by approximately 30-40%.
