the challenge

An extremely heavy duty floor coating system that demonstrates excellent resistance to aviation fluids was required for a new hangar at Bournemouth Aviation Park West. 

meet the client

Krüger Aviation was officially founded in 2016 as part of Krüger Group; a conglomerate of business units supporting the wider plastics industry since 1920 and the aviation industry since the 1980s.  

The company prides itself on its dedication to meeting the ever increasing needs of the aerospace sector, not only supplying and manufacturing innovative parts and materials, but delivering support, advice, technical support and training. 

the project

The 2,110 m² hangar was part of a large construction programme at Bournemouth Aviation Park West including the hangar as well as ancillary office space. 

The business park, located a short distance from the main terminal of Bournemouth Airport in Dorset, UK, comprises 200 acres and is currently home over 200 individual businesses in a range of mixed-use accommodation. 

Vebro’s solution

Installed in RAL 7038 Agate Grey across the 2,110 m² hangar, vebrores EP SL HCR — in this instance with an additional primer coating prior to the application of vebro EP Universal HCR — has been designed to offer enhanced chemical resistance including against Skydrol aviation hydraulic fluid. 

Not only does the system deliver excellent chemical resistance properties, vebrores EP SL HCR also delivers a durable, impact and wear resistant finish under the wheels of aeroplanes, and the vehicles associated with their maintenance. 

The pigmented, easily applied floor coating system is easily applied with a roller or rubber squeegee, and is ready to receive light foot traffic in 16 hours, followed by a full chemical cure ready for aeroplane traffic after just 7 days.
