PPG Aerospace introduces new-design windshield for Hawker 800 series aircraft

Glass-faced acrylic windshields available to operators from PPG - PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) aerospace transparencies group has received Parts Manufacturer Approval for its new-design glass-faced acrylic windshields for Hawker 800 series business jets, including the Hawker 750, 800, 800XP, 800 (U-125A), 850XP, 900XP and 1000 aircraft.  The fully certified PPG windshields are available for direct sale to operators.

According to Mark Hood, PPG global director for general aviation transparencies, the glass-faced acrylic windshields offer superior scratch, abrasion and chemical resistance over the previous all-acrylic design. The new-design windshields have a better, more reliable anti-ice heating system, higher visible light transmittance and improved precipitation-static drain.

“Using HERCULITE® II chemically strengthened glass for the outboard ply with acrylic main plies enabled PPG to design a lightweight windshield like the all-acrylic part while enhancing performance to improve expected service life,” Hood said. Also, PPG was able to add SURFACE SEAL® hydrophobic coating that affords water shedding for better pilot visibility during wet conditions without the need for wipers.

PPG is displaying a Hawker 800 windshield at its exhibit booth N4505 at the National Business Aviation Association convention and exhibition at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 17-19. Orders for PPG windshields for Hawker 800 series aircraft may be placed through PPG Aerospace’s worldwide network of application support centers. Visit www.ppgaerospace.com for the nearest one.
