Columbus, OH – AERO Advanced Paint Technology™ sets a new standard in durability for motorsports applications. By engineering the properties of AERO to meet the demands of the aerospace industry, the AERO team was able to leverage the best qualities of protective films along with the aesthetic value of spray applied paints into a single stage applique film. The result is a lightweight, easy-to-install paint that will stand up to the rigorous track environment without degradation.
Michael Shank Racing continued to utilize AERO Advanced Paint Technology through the end of the 2014 Tudor United Sports Car Championship series (TUSCC) in the number 60 Ford EcoPower Riley prototype car. Throughout the season, the car’s livery was offended by stones, grit, and rubber, race after race. However, by painting the car with AERO, MSR was never required to swap out the livery due to chipping, abrasion, or erosion. The team ran the same hood and bumpers for the entire season without an issue, even in the high wear areas. Nonetheless, with changes in sponsorship and design, AERO’s easy-to-strip, easy-to-install proprietary adhesive gave Shank the ability to easily change the side panels on their own terms. This allowed for easy sponsorship additions, specialty livery options, and race-day changes.
