AIRCRAFT FINISHING MATERIALSAIRCRAFT FINISHING MATERIALSPaint SystemsThe paint on an aircraft is referred to as a paint system. A paint system is a family of products that are compatible. A typical paint system includes: cleaners, conversion coatings, primers, and top coats. Most often the individual products in a paint system are not interchangable with other products of a different paint system or a different manufacturer. Modern high-solids paint systems have replaced traditional low-solids paints due to environmental regulations. Figure 5-1 shows a popular paint system used for propeller aircraft.
