Sherwin-Williams Adds Large-Area Metallic Series to Acry Glo® Topcoat System
Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Acry Glo® Urethane is now formulated with its Metallic HLG Acrylic Urethane topcoat finish for a cool, metallic finish, not only for quick-drying stripes on small aircraft and helicopters but as a metallic, overall finish for general aviation equipment as well.
Acry Glo Acrylic Urethane is a multi-component topcoat that has been a proven performance-coating in the aviation industry for more than 30 years. It is quick-drying, exhibits outstanding gloss and delivers gloss-retention upon weathering. Its excellent buffing characteristics make it a top choice.
“We have received numerous requests to do metallic aircraft crowns, bellies or overall aircraft," says Julie Voisin, Sherwin-Williams Global Marketing manager. “Acry Glo was designed to be fast, and not initially intended to cover large surface areas. With the new, revised Acry Glo HLG system, we can now offer designers and customers options.”
The new Acry Glo HLG metallic system involves a modified metallic color formula and is mixed differently than the traditional Acry Glo system to enable a longer application wet-edge and dry times. Although mixed differently, the same commonly used metallic colors are still available (i.e. Las Vegas Gold Metallic, Titanium, Ruby Metallic, etc.).
Providing versatile, proven performance, Acry Glo is a high-quality, rugged aerospace coating that offers outstanding durability with a chip-resistance that keeps equipment looking good, even in extremely harsh conditions.
Several clearcoat options are available to be used over the new Acry Glo HLG system, including the Acry Glo Clearcoat CM0571080 and the new SKYscapes® General Aviation Clearcoat CM0855CC3.
Acry Glo® HLG System benefits include:
- Extended wet-edge application times
- Resistant to chipping and UV exposure
- Long-lasting, high-gloss finish
- Available in popular metallic colors
- Salt-, chemical- and hydraulic fluid-resistant
- Numerous clearcoat options available.
