Aerospace Painting and Spray Coating Services
We offer a complete suite of Nadcap and AS9100 approved painting and spray coating services across the United States.
Valence offers a highly diversified set of painting services, including bond primer, fuel tank, high impact, primer, dry lube, and topcoat. The state of the art high capacity paint capabilities are integrated with our NDT, shot peen, and chemical process offerings.
With unique booth and oven capacity, we are able to paint parts up to 30’ in length. Our painters are fluent in a variety of applications on different exteriors. Our process ensures even coating and lasting desired results.
We are the industry leader in masking and painting capabilities for complicated programs, such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. We also hold unique bond primer and package capabilities for space components and helicopter blades. Valence painters are extremely skilled with many, having over 30 years of experience.
Primer, also known as undercoat, is the preparatory coating that can be used to enhance the bond strength of a topcoat and/or improve the corrosion resistance of a part. Applying primer is a crucial first step to the lasting results.
Fuel Tank Coating
Fuel tank coating is a specialty coating applied to the interior of aircraft fuel tanks that protects against corrosion from fuel contaminants. The coating allows fuel tanks to meet industry standards for longer durations.
Adhesive Bond Primer
Topcoat is the final coating on a part often used for cosmetic purposes. However, it often has application specific properties, such as reflectivity, conductivity, etc. The topcoat provides durability and resistance to harmful materials that will cause parts to deteriorate.
Anti-Chafe topcoats are specific coatings that are primarily used on surfaces where abrasion resistance, low friction and impact resistance are required to reduce chafing and wear. This specific topcoat serves as a defense in harmful environments.
Dry Film Lube
Dry film lube is a dry lubricant coating that reduces friction on surfaces sliding against each other. It offers operation at higher temperatures than other lubricants.
Sol-Gel is a process of creating metal oxides when applied to a part using metal alkoxides. The sol-gel is in high demand as it allows adhesive bonding of titanium and corrosion resistant alloys.
Zinc spray, or zinc chromate spray is a primer with corrosion inhibiting properties, commonly used on aluminum aircraft or spacecraft components. It is a high quality aerospace plating technique.
Valence performs all of these services to the highest degree of care, with approvals for most prime and military specifications. Our products and services significantly enhance safety, long-term use, and consistency in the aerospace industry. View our specs here.
