CorsoPatch Aircraft

Fast paint repair solution which maximizes aircraft availability.

During operation and maintenance, aircraft coatings can be locally damaged by erosion, lightning strike, bird strike, or ground service equipment. In most cases, these impacts are a few centimeters in diameter. The structure is initially not impacted but can degrade over time if the paint is not repaired (for example, because of corrosion). Local repair of a paint system is a lengthy process, requiring surface preparation, followed by the application of multiple paint layers: anticorrosion, primer and a topcoat. Such a process, including drying times, can take up to 10 hours. This leads to airlines leaving defects untreated, or making temporary repairs. Corso Magenta proprietary technology answers this challenge by making dry films out of standard paints that are adhesived. It allows making repairs in a quick and clean manner. The solution is a 10cm diameter adhesive patch of aeronautical grade paint, for carrying out permanent repairs in less than 40min: CorsoPatch Aircraft.

The environmental benefits

  • With liquid paint, workers are exposed to VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and Chromates: Corso Magenta's solution is 100% dry (without VOC)
  • Corso Magenta's solution is chromate free, and therefore REACH Compliant
  • For every paint repair, around 5 paint units are consumed when only 1 unit is used on the aircraft (80% is wasted): Corso Magenta's solution reduces paint waste by 95%

The Financial benefits

  • Paint repairs are 25% cheaper than with liquid paint
  • All consumables linked to paint usage are saved
  • All disposable protective equipment linked to paint usage are saved
