3 Aircraft Paint Job Maintenance Tips

Airplane Paint Job 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! Lucky for you, we have some tips and professional insight to help you keep your aircraft paint scheme looking new for longer!

1. Wash your plane

A regular washing schedule is one of the best ways to protect your aircraft’s paint job 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.

2. Check for chips or cracks on your plane

Speaking of damage, you should inspect to see if you have any signs of chipping or cracking areas. It’s important to do these checks regularly because these areas can cause corrosion and lead to expensive repairs if not caught immediately.

3. Wax and polish your pane

Once you have washed and checked over your aircraft paint job, 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. A sealant or ceramic coating is the best option since waxes tend to absorb dirt and discolor over time.
