Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings has rolled out its web-based Aircraft Color Visualizer to enable aircraft owners, paint shops designers, and other interested parties to digitally visualize color combinations on various aircraft types.
The interactive tool provides options on six models ranging from kit aircraft to heavy jets that can be customized with any color in the Sherwin-Williams library. Pre-designed schemes can include one base color and up to three accents in both solids and metallics. Customers can switch between designs and spin the aircraft to see them from different angles.
Sherwin-Williams said the visualizer is not intended to replace aircraft paint scheme designers but rather enhance color selection capabilities for designers and aircraft owners.
"Offering our customers this highly specialized online tool reflects our commitment to innovation beyond paint and coatings," said Julie Voisin, Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings global marketing manager. "The Aircraft Color Visualizer tool will not only serve as inspiration for customers and designers, but it will also ease the color selection process for them. We're excited to see how customers will utilize the full breadth of our color palette in their unique creations."
