Indian Air Force gains from Indestructible Paint Technology

Specialist coating manufacturer brought expertise to combat helicopter operated by the Indian air force


Following the recent extensive painting of India’s Surya Kirans aerobatic display team aircraft, specialist coating manufacturer, Indestructible Paint Ltd., has brought its expertise to a light combat helicopter operated by the Indian air force. Products from the Birmingham-based company – which has a proven leading reputation in the global aviation sector – have now been re-certified for application by local distributor, Matcon High Coats PVT Ltd., by the helicopter division of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.

“Both new build and overhaul vehicles have been coated with a system of high build epoxy primer-surfacer for the composite airframe, overcoated with a 2-component polyurethane finish in both military and commercial colours,” says John Bourke, Global Sales Manager at Indestructible Paint. The work has been conducted at many sites throughout India with more than 300 Advanced Light Helicopters and Light Attack Helicopters painted since the original certification in 2005.
