Stages in Aircraft Body Painting Process

1. The painting process begins with the initial preparation, that is the cleaning and removal of old paint from the body of the plane. Do using sanding or chemical stripping techniques to ensure the surface of the body of the aircraft is free from dirt and the remains of the previous paint.

2. After cleaning, the technician will check the body of the plane to detect damage or imperfections on the surface. Any dent or crack will be repaired to ensure the surface of the body of the plane is completely flat and ready for the painting process.

3. Certain parts of the aircraft that will not be painted, such as windows, landing wheels, and sensors, will be covered or masked to protect it during the painting process. This masking is done very carefully to ensure no area is affected by the paint accidentally.

4. Primer is the base layer applied to the surface of the body of the aircraft to improve paint adhesion and protect the metal from corrosion. Primary application is usually done in several thin layers to get maximum results.

5. After the dry primer, the base paint is applied, as the main color of the aircraft that will be the background for the livery design. After dry base paint, the design of the livery that has been designed will be applied using a special sticker painting or installation technique.

6. Clear coat is the final layer applied over the base paint and livery to provide additional protection and provide a glossy and attractive look. Clear coat also helps protect paint from scratches and weather damage.

7. After all the paint layers and clear coat are dry, the aircraft will go through the final inspection stage to ensure the painting quality meets the set standards. Any imperfections will be repaired, and the aircraft will be cleaned before it is ready to return to operation.
