Aerobatic display colorants

Milliken offers all colorants used in these aerobatic displays. Based on liquid technology, these products are modified, highly soluble versions of powder dyes in high strength solutions, created specifically for use in aerobatic displays.

The colorant is injected into the hot air in the jet exhaust or self-contained smoke pod, where the heat evaporates the solvent and sublimates the dye into a gas. As the sublimated dye reaches the cool air it condenses to produce the colored smoke trail.

Specialized airborne colorants

Milliken offers specialized color matching and blending facilities to create a limitless number of shades to meet every need. These colorants are compatible with all types of on-board generators used to create the airborne colors. In the meantime, we continue to actively develop next generation technology.
