Aerospace Paint


Aerospace Paint

Poeton have been at the forefront of aerospace paint for many years and have been utilised by various paint manufacturers as the test house for new products, especially hexavalent-chrome free products. In combination with our other treatments such as NDT, Alocrom, Surtec, Anodising, and plating, we can truly offer a one stop shop for aerospace treatments.

We hold approvals for many of the major aerospace primes such as: Airbus, Moog, Collins (UTC, HS, Pratt & Whitney), SAFRAN, Rolls Royce, Honeywell, Heroux Devtek, Curtiss-Wright, Ultra Electronics.

The REACH regulations have changed the aerospace painting landscape dramatically over recent years. Poeton has pioneered the testing and evaluation of these chrome free systems and now stocks a full range of hexavalent chrome free paint systems. By combining these new systems with the latest Alocrom replacements such as Surtec, Lanthane or Socosurf, or the latest chromic anodising replacements such as Tartaric Sulphuric Anodising (TSA) or Thin Film Sulphuric Anodising (TFSA); a truly hexavalent chrome free treatment system can be achieved.

We have a dedicated masking team with a CNC plotter, enabling us to produce customer masking kits for the most complex of parts. Our onsite jig and tool manufacturers can also produce hard tooling and masking to improve the efficiency and quality of high volume repeat work.
