PPG Industries’ Desothane HD/CA 9008 basecoat-clearcoat consists of a heavily pigmented basecoat that provides color with less paint than conventional high-solids paints and a clearcoat that extends service life, improves buffability and achieves a smoother, high-gloss surface that is easier to clean. The basecoat-clearcoat is easily removed during repainting, leaving the primer intact.

Desothane HD/CA 9008 basecoat-clearcoat is a part of a growing number of PPG Aerospace chromate-free systems qualified to SAE International’s Aerospace Material Specification 3095A for airline exterior paint. The company says that nearly 250 aircraft have been successfully painted with PPG basecoat-clearcoat systems.
