Chemetall presents innovative portfolio for the aerospace industry at Singapore Airshow 2020

The Surface Treatment global business unit of BASF's Coatings division, operating under the Chemetall brand, will exhibit at the Singapore Airshow, Booth S101, Changi Exhibition Center, on February 11-16, 2020. At the show, Chemetall will showcase a fully integrated, innovative and optimized portfolio of products and solutions for aerospace OEM (original equipment manufacturing) and MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) companies; offerings include metalworking fluids, corrosion protection, non-destructive testing, cleaners, sealants, surface treatments and conversion coatings. This tradeshow is one of the largest aerospace and defence exhibitions in Asia Pacific.

"We have been serving the aerospace industry for decades. This is our 7th time participating in the Airshow, and every time, we bring our latest solutions for specific applications. For example, one of the innovative products we are presenting is Ardrox® AV 35D, a corrosion inhibiting compound. It was specifically designed for modern, hybrid airframe structures. With its fluorescent property, it can be easily detected and therefore, customers can achieve enhanced application control. When compared to traditional corrosion compounds, Ardrox® AV 35D is a cost-efficient product as customers need to apply only one layer instead of two or three layers," said Andy Boey, Regional Business Manager, Aerospace Segment, Chemetall Asia Pte Ltd.
