Sherwin-Williams JetPen™ Makes Small Touch-ups Easier than Ever
Sherwin-Williams introduces the JetPen™, a 2K fully reactive paint that delivers the same exceptional strength and crosslinked durability found in aircraft paint — but with the application ease of using a pen. This new touch-up pen from Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings is ideal for use on aircraft exteriors and interior cabins at any point during the application or maintenance process. JetPen allows aircraft owners, operators and service personnel to save time and money on most any aircraft with quick and easy touch-ups on chips, dings and scratches.
JetPen features a hardener which is separated by a capsule within the pen, ensuring the shelf-life and integrity of the product. Once activated, JetPen can be used in multiple places on an aircraft before it dries. It is available in a variety of colors and meets the needs of small area corrosion control and critical rework on general aviation, business jet, commercial airline and military aircraft. An inexpensive alternative to buying a full gallon of paint, the disposable design of JetPen allows for improved inventory control.
A spring-loaded valve provides excellent material flow control, and the applicator can hold up to 10cc. It is easy to activate and comes complete with a chisel and brush attachment. The brush- and chisel-tip applicator are perfect for small-scale touch-up jobs on all types of aircraft, exterior or interior, and are ideal for rivet heads, bolt heads, scratches, edges, access panels and much more. Its fast-drying characteristics streamline the process even further; if a mechanic must go out and apply a quick repair, it can be touched up before the aircraft even takes off.
JetPen can be color-matched — perfect for most any aircraft livery or fleet — and is available in Sherwin-Williams AMS 3095-certified Jet Glo Express™ High Solids Polyurethane topcoat and JetFlex® Polyurethane cabin coatings, as well as Sherwin-Williams Chrome Hazard Free primer CM0483787. JetPen has a one-year shelf-life for topcoat colors.
“Customers will love the simplicity of the product; just break it, shake it and then repaint it,” says Julie Voisin, Sherwin-Williams Aerospace global marketing manager. “No special equipment or training is required for application. The JetPen controls the amount of coating applied to the aircraft surface.”
