SHERWIN-WILLIAMS LARGE AREA METALLIC HLG SERIES NOW AVAILABLE WITH ACRY GLO® TOPCOAT SYSTEM Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Acry Glo® Urethane has now been formulated with its Metallic HLG Acrylic Urethane topcoat finish for a cool, metallic finish. It not only handles quick drying stripes, but also as a metallic overall finish for business jets and general aviation aircraft. 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. Acry Glo Urethane 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," said 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, 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 and has long-lasting design requirements. 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: • 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 For more information on coatings, go to Sherwin-Williams Aerospace visit SEE US AT NBAA-BACE BOOTH 4863 AIRCRAFT COATINGS THAT PROTECT AND REFLECT You expect your aircraft's finish to be durable and great looking.
