WHAT IS PERMAGARD?
PERMAGARD is a concentrated emulsion of amino methoxy functional ethyl polymers which form a plasticized film on all hard paint and gel coats by reacting with the moisture in the air. Once the film has cured (24hrs) it will strongly adhere to the surface. PERMAGARD has high corrosive resistance, excellent water repellence and deep, wet-looking, glossy shine.
HOW IS PERMAGARD APPLIED?
The PERMAGARD application begins by thoroughly cleaning all painted surfaces of the aircraft. This removes grime, wax or silicone residues which may exist on new or used painted surfaces. The next step is to condition the paint using one or two of Permagard’s five different conditioners depending on the age and condition of the paint. Then PERMAGARD’s reactive polymer is applied using low speed oscillating polishing machines. The rotation and pressure created by the polishers commences the curing process. As the treated surface cures, the plasticized molecules elongate, interlocking with each other to create a tough bonded durable coating.
WHAT DOES PERMAGARD DO?
PERMAGARD’s sophisticated ‘reactive polymer’ and UV filtering technology protects aircraft paint against fading and oxidation thereby maintaining the paints original aesthetic brilliance. PERMAGARD’s unique polymer gloss spectrum ingredients react with the painted surface to produce an incredibly high gloss, low friction permanent coating. This protective coating dramatically reduces cleaning time and costs by reducing the frequency and ground time required for washes. When the aircraft is washed, harsh and environmentally damaging chemicals are no longer needed.
PERMAGARD has been proven to reduce parasitic drag on business jets, thereby reducing engine cruise power settings, ultimately saving between 2-4% on fuel burn.
The PERMAGARD concept is based on the idea that “an ounce prevention is better than a pound of cure”. It is cheaper and easier to repair and maintain the Permagard coating than to repaint. Costly repainting of aging aircraft can be prevented simply by removing all oxidized paint using PERMAGARD’s revolutionary treatment.
Professional technicians apply PERMAGARD to the painted surfaces of the aircraft. The product bonds and hardens over the surface of the paint, leaving a permanent transparent high gloss barrier between the paint and the environment. Once treated with PERMAGARD the aircraft is totally sealed and protected from the day to day elements that effect and degrade aviation paints. The only maintenance required is to maintain the integrity of the PERMAGARD coating leaving the paint protected and undamaged. PERMAGARD’s reactive polymer coating continually protects against corrosive attack from runway contaminants, Skydrol, salt, pollution, oxidation and harsh UV light that together cause paint to oxidize and fade.
