The high-altitude environment is very unforgiving. Damaging UV rays, moisture, temperature extremes, and pollution — compounded by factors such as deicing solutions, oil, exhaust fumes, and bird/insect contaminants — can cause damage that impairs your aircraft’s performance and ruins its appearance.
System X is the latest ceramic technology, not a clear bra, wax, polish, or typical paint sealant. This new coating exhibits outstanding resistance to friction, heat, and solvents. System X seals, protects, and bonds to all painted aircraft surfaces, including composites.
A breakthrough in aviation protection technology, System X is a semi-permanent ceramic coating. It is easily applied by hand or via HVLP spray gun in about 30 minutes to your helicopter, plane, or jet to provide long-term shine and protection.
Protection from harmful environmental factors
The high-altitude environment is very unforgiving. System X aviation ceramic protection provides an extremely durable ceramic coating that won't wash off thereby ensuring long-lasting clean surfaces and gloss retention, as well as years of paint protection.
System X aviation ceramic protection can be applied to all of your aircraft’s painted exterior surfaces, including composites.
Long-lasting beauty with minimal maintenance
The unique formula of System X aviation ceramic coatings brings out the full luster and sheen of your aircraft's finish while also extending exterior paint life. The end result is greatly reduced cleaning and repainting expenses.
System X aviation ceramic protection is super-slick, which improves laminar flow and reduces drag for increased fuel efficiency.
System X is a semi-permanent coating that actually becomes the functional surface of your aircraft’s paintwork. By creating an inseparable bond on a molecular level with your paintwork, you get a coating that cannot be washed off like a wax or sealant.
System X acts as a second clear coat, which provides increased protection against the elements. This new clear coating is glossier, chemical resistant, and harder than the original clear coat, providing incredible protection against deicing fluids, minor scratches, swirl marks, acid rain, bird droppings, and UV rays.
This coating doesn’t just form a sacrificial shield of protection like other products. Instead, it bonds into your paintwork or metal surface, creating a semi-permanent shell. This shell provides a heat resistance of >1000 degrees and an easy-to-clean barrier against the adherence of contaminants. Many clients enjoy using System X near hard-to-clean exhaust ports.
System X paint protection can be applied to the entire exterior of your aircraft, except rubber and soft plastic. System X bonds into the paintworks microscopic pores, forming an extremely durable, crystal clear ceramic finish. This provides genuine long-term protection.
Testing has shown System X coatings to be extremely resilient to solvents, weathering, and general wear and tear.
