NCMS Project #: 140920
Problem: There are several instances where corrosion coatings are subjected to high temperatures and it is paramount that they hold their structure and integrity. Whether it is fire, combustible elements, friction, or other elongated high temperature situations, U.S. industry, public works organizations, and the DoD depend that corrosion coatings won’t break down.
Benefit: Research and development into these coatings would enable development of coating systems that withstand extreme operational conditions to maintain readiness and minimize maintenance burdens.
Solution/Approach: The project will evaluate improvements to existing coating systems and/or development of novel coating systems that meet requirements for high-temperature resistance for integration onto current and future vehicle platforms.
Impact on Warfighter:
- Reduce maintenance labor and associated costs
- Reduce repair costs
- Improve and sustain warfighter readiness
- U.S. Army TARDEC
- PPG Industries, Inc.
- Costs savings
- Repair turnaround times
