RE-DETAIL offer’s the only aviation paint correction & ceramic coating service in Guernsey. An aircraft is often let down by defects on the paint that have built up over a period of time, such as bird/bug dropping marks, hologramming, cobwebbing, swirl marks and other fine scratches. These defects are commonly incurred by incorrect hand washing or just lack of care as well as the natural ageing process, due to the extremes that these craft endure, daily. You will be stunned at the difference paint correction can make, it can be the difference between an aircraft looking tired and aged to as fresh as the day it rolled out of the factory. RE-DETAIL use the very latest state of the art machinery and the correct methodology to ensure that you receive the very best possible finish.
A two part coating system specifically developed for the aviation industry. The coating system will protect the paint of the aircraft from the elements, it will also improve the aesthetics significantly by making the surface glossier. “Aero” creates a super slick finish that reduces the air friction slightly which in turn, reduces the fuel consumption, and increases the optimum speed of the aircraft.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND AVIATION COATING
There are many factors that affect ‘drag’ on an airplane, but they can be broken down into two main categories. The first being ‘Induced drag’ (due to lift) and the second being ‘form drag’ (due to friction, and frontal area). A reduction in drag form would result in a direct proportional reduction in fuel usage. If we consider that the friction reduction is constant across the board, then a downward shift in the form drag curve would occur, meaning that the total drag (optimum value) is reduced. It also shifts the optimum speed point forward.
