High Performance Clear Coating
BluSky Armor

 

BluSky Armor® is the
game-changing new UV-cured cabinet finishing system that takes days – even weeks – out of the interior finishing timeline.

BluSky Armor® high-performance clear coatings are a cutting-edge series of very fast UV-cured cabinet finishes that are innovating aircraft cabinet finishing specifications. BluSky Armor® offers exceptional performance and speedy drying times that result in less rework of cabinets for finish flaws, and higher profits from shortened finishing cycles. The products are inherently flame-resistant and meet the requirements of 14CFR 25.853 for 60-second vertical burn, toxic gas emission and smoke density.

The advanced chemical formulation of BluSky Armor® yields an improved in-service finish performance on-board the aircraft, achieved through the unique cross-linked polymer chemistry of its acrylate-based formulation. The finish offers excellent clarity and hardness and provides superior resistance to scratching and solvent abrasion. It offers much-desired flexibility/elongation properties, it is highly resistant to cracking, yellowing and shattering, and has exceptional finish adhesion to wood and wood veneers, composites and painted surfaces.

Users of BluSky Armor® will accelerate the completion of cabinet finishing projects, leading to quicker returns to service of aircraft and increased profits for both the interior finishing shop and the aircraft operators, who can begin generating revenue for their operations more quickly.

Here are some of the reasons why your cabinet shop should consider converting to the BluSky Armor® clear coating system:

  • BluSky Armor® fully cures tack-free, dry to the touch in less than 120 seconds when exposed to our LED UV-lighting. Our catalyst activates in the UV-A range (395 nm), the safest range of light in the UV spectrum.
  • The 1007-U sealer formulation stabilizes veneer to minimize product shrinkage, eliminating costly rework.
  • It is comprised of 100% solids; there are zero solvents, VOCs or HAPs in its leading-edge formulation.
  • Cabinet finishing timelines are reduced by days – even weeks!
  • Faster finishing times result in higher throughput and increased profits.
  • Product consumption is reduced by as much as 40% - less is wasted from solvent flash. More profit for you!
  • Single-stage formulation is used straight out of the bottle – no mixing of catalysts, hardeners, reducers, or fire-retardants. Fewer mixing errors = higher profits!
  • Pot life is indefinite. Left-over clear coating can be returned to a light-proof container for use later.
  • Application utilizes existing spray equipment. No special fixtures or methods are needed.
  • BluSky Armor® is priced competitively with solvent-based, catalyzed, slow-curing, labor-intensive products.
  • Application requires minimal training to adopt.
  • BluSky Armor® adheres to existing finishes. It is ideal for repairing minor scratches “on wing.”
  • BluSky Armor® is offered in a variety of viscosities to adapt to any vertical or horizontal spray needs.
  • Multiple sheens are available, from High Gloss to Satin to Matte finishes.
  • Minimal capital outlay required to adopt technology. UV LED curing lamps are inexpensive and long-lasting.

As you can see there are many reasons to convert to BluSky Armor®, and there are more.

The biggest question that we are asked after a product demonstration is,

“How do I set up my spray booth to cure the finish?”

That’s a great question, and there is actually no single answer. It really is contingent upon the type aircraft you typically work on, and the size cabinets to be finished.
