Maintenance Tips To Keep Your Aircraft Paint Job Looking Fresh
Airplane Paint Maintenance Tips
After an aircraft paint job from Art Craft Paint, many of our clients want to know how to keep their new airplane paint scheme looking great for years to come! We have some tips and professional insight to share to help you to keep your aircraft paint scheme looking like new for longer!
Wash your plane
Keeping a regular washing schedule is one of the best ways to keep your aircraft’s paint protected from damage and corrosion. Doing a simple wash with cool water and non-streaking car wash soap can help remove any contaminants while also allowing you to check for any surface damage on the aircraft.
Check for chips or cracks
Speaking of damage, you should inspect to see if you have any signs of chipping or cracking areas. These areas can cause corrosion and lead to expensive repairs if not caught right away.
Wax and polish
Once you have washed and checked over your aircraft plane, you should wax and polish it. Always use an airplane-designated product since automotive polishes may not be strong enough to provide the protection your aircraft may need. Sealant or ceramic coatings are is the best options, to go for since waxes tend to absorb dirt and discolor over time.
