Anniversary livery for Malaysia Airlines

Akzo Nobel Aerospace Coatings : 16 January, 2013  (Application Story)
Malaysia Airlines uses paint and coating system from AkzoNobel for delivering anniversary livery to celebrate 40 years of flying
Anniversary livery for Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia Airlines is celebrating 40 years of world renowned Malaysian Hospitality delivery to air travellers. As part of a series of year-long activities the national flag carrier recently revealed one of its aircraft painted with the special “40 years of Malaysian Hospitality” livery. A Boeing 737-800 was re-painted in full colours of their first ever aircraft that took to the skies four decades ago, offering a special guest experience for customers who fly in this aircraft.

Based on nearly twenty years of close cooperation, AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings partnered to develop the coloUrs, advised on selection of the paint system and also provided on-site technical support to the highly skilled work force of the MAS paint shop.

For the Retro Livery that dates back to October 1972, the most modern paint system was selected. The B737-800 aircraft was painted with Aerodur 3001 Base Coat and Aerodur 3002 Clear Coat and benefits from the very latest advances in technology;  notably improved gloss, colour retention and extended durability, providing the ultimate protection and good looks for Malaysia Airlines’ brand image.

Recognized as the first Base Coat/Clear Coat system that fulfils it’s promises, the Aerodur Base Coat only needs one coat per color for full hiding and dries in two hours instead of ten. The entire surface of the aircraft was finished with a protective Aerodur Clear Coat. As a result, the MAS paint shop benefited from faster process times and paint volume reduction. The wide application window made the system particularly suitable for the tropical conditions.

AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings is proud of the ongoing relationship with Malaysia Airlines and is delighted to be associated with the commemorative aircraft.

"We are very proud to say that we have been working very closely with Malaysia Airlines since 1993 and looking at this aircraft nearly 20 years later I can only feel pride in our ongoing relationship. It was an honour to meet with Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof, the Chairman of Malaysia Airlines and explain the process and advantages of the latest paint technology used on this B737-800”, said Graham Windsor, AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings’ General Manager Asia Pacific.
