Repair rather than replace
Now also in the cabin
A scratch in the paintwork, scuffed leather on the seats, or scratches on high-quality components: minor and larger imperfections accumulate in any aircraft cabin. Conventional repair typically means the time-consuming replacement of components – and this is typically performed during a layover.
Two of our colleagues had a simple but ingenious idea: Why not use a special pistol to add a coating to the damaged areas of cabin elements, making them look brand new without any costly replacements. This innovative process means offering a mobile repair service that can be done as part of the daily maintenance operations – even during short layovers.
Specialized mechanics walk through the cabin and look for minor damages. Particularly armrests are affected by wear, following the daily use. When the mechanics find flaws , they clean the affected area, paint it with a special pistol and then dry it. Afterwards, a coat of clear lacquer is added which is dried by a hot-air blower
