Airbus A350 structure uses sustainable paints

AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings is extremely proud to be the supplier of the paint system and vibrant colours that decorate the first Airbus A350 XWB.

For AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings it’s becoming an increasingly regular occurrence for their Base Coat/Clear Coat systems to be selected to paint first editions of customer aircraft.

Airbus, focusing largely on sustainability, has made the decision to utilize the new paint system as it requires less paint and less solvent. These savings are a great endorsement of AkzoNobel’s continued commitment to delivering sustainable solutions to customers worldwide.

“Our colours decorate the first flying A350,” says Jérôme Mancy, EADS Global Key Account Manager. “The aircraft was painted in Toulouse – it’s the first Airbus with both fuselage and wing structures made primarily of composites. We have a very good relationship with Airbus – and many of their aircraft are painted with AkzoNobel coatings.”
