A chromate-free metal pretreatment and a chromate-free exterior decorative primer from PPG Industries’ aerospace coatings group are now standard on Boeing Next-Generation 737 production airplanes, PPG says.


Desogel EAP-9 metal pretreatment and Desoprime CF/CA 7502 epoxy primer by PPG Aerospace is being used on qualified topcoats on Boeing Next-Generation 737 airplanes.
Kevin Brooks, PPG Aerospace global segment manager for original-equipment coatings said airlines are also requesting primers with a non-chromated pretreatment for Boeing 767 and 777 widebodies.
