Boeing has prepared a new 737-800 jet with the first ever application of a chrome-free primer used on single-aisle plane
bound for commercial service. A chrome free primer reduces the environmental impact of the paint and stripping process,
eliminating the need for designated offsite disposal areas. Such advantages also are of benefi t when the airplane is
prepared for repainting. The new plane will be delivered to Brazilian carrier, GOL, though Boeing intends to make it
a standard option in the future.
