Aircraft Leather Seat Repair Services
Color Glo is proud to partner with Aero Interior Mainenance (AIM) as FAA licensed repair technicians nationwide under FAA repair station #V70R765X for service to fleet and commercial craft.
Interior Component Repair – Seat Surfaces, Side Panels, Table Tops
AIM and Color Glo offer services for interior aircraft components constructed of leather, vinyl, and plastic. Included components are aircraft seating, interior side panels and reveals, seat headliners, bases, window reveals, table tops, and drink rails. Many different plastic compounds, vinyls, and leather are used in the aviation industry to produce interior space components that are practical and low-maintenance while retaining a refined and elegant appearance. Keeping these surfaces in top condition is key to a positive customer experience.
Cleaning, Redying, and Repair Services For The Aviation Industry
Color Glo and AIM offer full spectrum service to commercial and fleet craft, including:
Cleaning and conditioning – includes basic cleaning of soil buildup, print ink or ink stains, scuffmark removal, and leather conditioner application.
Restoration of worn surfaces – High wear areas including seat arm rests and upper back cushions frequently experience wear beyond the original finish coat that leaves leather surfaces vulnerable to premature failure. Thorough cleaning, repairs, redying and refinishing renew these surfaces and restores the protective finish of original manufacture.
Repair of damaged areas – In the majority of cases, color fading, surface scuff damage, scratching and cracking can be resolved with professional repair techniques. Leather, vinyl, and hard plastic components can be repaired and renewed, and then restored to pristine appearance with original color restoration by redying.
Restoring resiliency with redying – Faded, scuffed, scratched and cracked surfaces can be repaired to new condition. Vinyl, hard plastic, and leather surfaces all respond well to restoration processes, and can be redyed to produce a like-new appearance.
Quality Control Focus
Many restoration companies boast of products they offer which remain compliant with existing burn certificates, but cannot claim to have an FAA repair station which regulates authorized use and assurance of standards qualification. In short, they lack stringent quality control systems. Color Glo and AIM utilize an FAA certified system that assures minimum training standards for techicians, trace restoration products at every point from production to use, and comply with all requirements of FAA documentation to assure proper protocols are met when returning craft to service after restoration. At the customer’s discretion, we use either FAA Form #8130-3 or logbook entry forms for documentation. Existing burn certifications are maintained without compromise when AIM maintains your aircraft interiors.
