Sherwin-Williams Presents SKYscapes Shimmer Basecoat

SKYscapes® Shimmer Basecoat is the latest innovative offering from Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings. Adding a new dimension to effect coatings, SKYscapes Shimmer Basecoat will convert any solid basecoat into an aesthetically pleasing effect-finish without losing the clean vibrancy of the color itself. It is a cost-efficient, production-friendly solution for all commercial and general aviation aircraft.

SKYscapes Shimmer Basecoat 850 Series (SH colors) uses translucent pearl/mica pigments to create a fully repairable, durable “shimmer” finish over the entire plane design without sacrificing true, vibrant color.

Aircraft owners love a custom look, but when on-time delivery is critical, every moment counts. Easy to mix with excellent leveling, SKYscapes Shimmer Basecoat is designed to dry quickly at ambient temperatures, without requiring any sanding between coats.

“Matching customer micas is time-consuming and has traditionally been an unavoidable stall in the maintenance process,” says Julie Voisin, Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings Global Marketing manager. “SKYscapes Shimmer Basecoat converts entire solid-color designs into an effect-coating through one application process.”

SKYscapes Shimmer Coat, currently available in Silver or Prismatic/Multi-Color, is designed to work with Sherwin Williams' SKYscapes® Basecoat/Clearcoat system and is used as part of an SAE AMS 3095-qualified system.

Some of the advantages of SKYscapes Shimmer Basecoat:

  • Uses translucent pearl/mica pigments to achieve special effect colors for aircraft
