Aerospace coating is a protective covering applied on the aircraft surface for decorative and functional aspects. It is also called as a substrate. Airlines use decorative coating for painting, repair and maintenance whereas protective layer is used to prevent parts from external reaction and also prevents chemical reaction with other parts. Some of the important characteristics for protective layers are protection against intense UV exposure at high altitude, protection against temperature fluctuation, corrosion and humid conditions. Demand to reduce downtime of aircraft, improved durability and extended maintenance cycle has stimulated aerospace coating market globally.
