Duncan Aviation Discusses Common Paint Maintenance Misconceptions in New Whitepaper
April 23, 2010
LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation recently released a whitepaper that addresses common misperceptions and pitfalls when planning for an aircraft paint refurbishment.
Entitled "Paint, Maintenance & Aircraft Value," the whitepaper shares the knowledge of experienced aircraft completions representatives at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln and Battle Creek facilities. The whitepaper offers advice ranging from what cleaning products to avoid, how to determine if paint is applied correctly, and some lesser-known yet important questions to ask before scheduling service.
"A lot of owners and operators judge the quality of a paint job by its gloss," says George Bajo, Completions Sales Representative at Duncan Aviation-Battle Creek. "Gloss is an indicator, but it’s not the indicator. Surface preparation and application processes have a huge impact on how long a paint finish lasts and how well it protects an aircraft from the elements."
How effectively paint protects an aircraft from corrosion depends on several factors, which include: how the paint is applied, technician experience, product durability and routine maintenance. More details are available in the free whitepaper, which is available to Download Now.
For more information, please contact George Bajo at 269.969.8462, or any member of the Completions Sales Team at 402.475.2611 or 800.228.4277.
