ULTITEC 2000 was recognized by Indonesia's biggest budget airline Lion Air for its aircraft painting and disinfection for COVID-19. We are proud of our Indonesia partner in this achievement and here is his testimonial to share with us.
Due to the expansion of aircraft painting factory, Lion Air safety officers have been evaluating suitable PPE. The groundcrew will face stripping, sanding, refinishing, touching up, and blasting which required exposure to chemicals, vapors, mist, dust, or airborne debris that may be hazardous.
We recommended ULTITEC 2000 and sent samples to them. They have done field testing and confirmed it is qualified based on its protective capability against liquid splash. Due to the painting process is done in a closed environment with adequate ventilation, breathability is a key consideration to prevent heat exhaustion. ULTITEC 2000 fulfilled this criterion by its microporous film fabric construction.
Lion Air also focuses on brand observation. We appended technical datasheets, competitor comparison charts, and global case studies for their reference. This further convinced their decision board to opt for brand switching to ULTITEC 2000. Batam Island aims to become an aviation maintenance center for Southeast Asia, so we are optimistic about the future usage of ULTITEC in the aviation industry.
Lastly, due to COVID-19, Lion Air applied ULTITEC 2000 to disinfect a Lion Air Boeing 737-800 at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. The ground crew disinfected the cockpit before take-off, sterilized the cabin and seats to ensure the safety of passengers. We are proud to be a part of the ULTITEC family and will continue to do our best in promoting the coveralls!
