SAFE TO USE
In the past, the only way to safely cover or paint an aircraft required the use of solvents that were very toxic, flammable and hazardous to the environment, as well as unpleasant to work with. Through the use of modern waterborne coatings technology, Stewart Systems has changed that forever! All of our fabric covering and painting products are non-hazardous, non-flammable and EPA compliant. Finally, you can cover and paint aircraft without endangering your health or the environment… and enjoy the process!
Through the use of modern waterborne coatings technology, we have also greatly improved the durability and overall lifespan of our system compared to the old solvent-borne systems. This has been proven by many hardworking aircraft in the field that have been completed in our system for over 20 years, with no cracks and no loss of gloss.
LIGHTER & MORE FLEXIBILE
Another advantage of Stewart Systems waterborne technology is the weight savings. The entire system on a Super Cub weighs less than 40 lbs. That is 30% lighter than our closest solvent-based competitor. This is possible because the effectiveness of our coatings is far greater, reducing the overall volume of material applied to the aircraft by as much as 50%. Thinner coatings mean less weight and more flexibility, yet an increase in overall durability.
