Aircraft Preservation Coatings for Long Term Storage and Preservation
Protectapeel Aircraft Preservation System
In 1953 Spraylat developed the first water-based system for aircraft preservation. In those days, the planes were sprayed in the United States and sent fully protected to overseas bases and loaded on the decks of aircraft carriers. In the Vietnam war the helicopters were peeled on deck and immediately flown into combat. Today this preservation system is still used to protect or mothball aircraft, oil rigs and valuable assets in many business sectors.
The temporary peelable coating is sprayed on to the non-porous parts of the aircraft, protecting it from corrosion or damage during mothballing. When the aircraft is ready to be re-introduced the temporary peelable coating is simply removed by hand peeling. The coating will prevent the need to repair damaged paintwork or in the most extreme cases prevent a full re-spray
