With the true eye of the tiger, aircraft maker Embraer recently collaborated with AkzoNobel’s aerospace coatings business to develop new livery for three of Embraer’s latest line of E2 business jets, depicting a tiger, an eagle and a shark.

The aircraft murals were painted using products from AkzoNobel’s Alumigrip and Aerodur product lines. The livery was changed at the aircraft company’s facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil, which is also home to an AkzoNobel color mixture center.

AkzoNobel's base coat/clear coat system was also applied to the exteriors of all three aircraft, which are being used to promote Embraer’s global Profit Hunter project. The endeavor is focused around promoting the E195-E2 jet, which the company claims will help airline companies sustain profitability.
