AkzoNobel receives Boeing approval for color blending in China

September 15/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- AkzoNobels aerospace coatings facility in Dongguan, China, has been qualified by aircraft manufacturer Boeing to color blend the companys Aerodur 3001 basecoat, said Chemweek.

The certification means the site has been certified by Boeing to blend AkzoNobels industry-leading basecoat/clearcoat system, Aerodur 3001/3002, locally in China with OEM (original equipment manufacturer) approval. The Dongguan facility is also now listed on Boeings official QPL for BMS10-72 specification.

QPL approval status is an important milestone for the facility, which opened in 2017 to specifically serve the North and South Asian aviation market and deliver cutting-edge technologies faster and more reliably. Were proud to receive this certification from Boeing, says Ron Fattal, AkzoNobels Key Account Manager for Boeing. Its further recognition of our commitment to putting the needs of our customers at the heart of our product development."

One of the key benefits of the innovative basecoat/clearcoat system is that it dries faster and retains its color and gloss significantly longer than single stage coatings. It also offers superior chemical and stain resistance, flexibility and weathering performance. Our customers demand the best in terms of both performance and aesthetics, continues Fattal. Receiving industry approval of this caliber shows how dedicated we are to putting our customers and their needs first."

The Dongguan site has been open since December 2001, with the Aerospace Coatings facility being added as an expansion in early 2017.

As MRC informed earlier, BASF would expand the capacity of ethylene oxide and ethylene oxide derivatives at its Verbund site in Antwerp, Belgium. The total investment adds about 400 000 tpy to BASFs production capacity for the corresponding products with an expected investment amount exceeding EUR500 million.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's DataScope report, PE imports to Russia dropped in January-June 2020 by 7% year on year to 328,000 tonnes. High density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for the main decrease in imports. At the same time, PP imports into Russia rose in the first six months of 2020 by 21% year on year to 105,300 tonnes. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.
