Boeing has introduced this chrome-free primer and chrome-free exterior decorative paint in response to environmental requests from various airlines. In addition to simplified health and safety monitoring requirements, a chrome-free primer reduces the environmental impact of the paint and stripping process, since removing chrome from the paint and primer eliminates the need for special handling of paint waste and clean-up, and designated off-site disposal areas.

Boeing will apply this non-chrome paint and primer on up to 14 airplanes across various airplane models for in-service evaluation with the intention of making it a standard option in the future.
