Global aerospace coatings supplier AkzoNobel and international aerospace pioneer Airbus recently teamed up to launch a new chromate-free exterior primer.

"The launch of Aerodur HS 2121 builds on our long-standing commitment to improving our products, meeting customer needs and offering more sustainable solutions," said Maud Khelstovsky, AkzoNobel's Key Account Manager for Airbus.

"It's an eco-premium solution which enables us to reduce the cost of ownership for our customers while boosting their sustainability profile."

The primer was designed to be applied during an aircraft’s final assembly stage to all external surfaces. The latest generation of its kind, the primer is reported to offer increased adhesion without pretreatment (also on rivets), better visual coverage, improved corrosion performance and flexibility.

John Griffin, Managing Director of AkzoNobel's Aerospace Coatings, added, “We're driven by innovation and are excited to offer customers a next generation product which has clear performance and sustainability benefits.”
