A major goal of this project is to enable the accelerated testing and durability evaluation of tire storage coatings. Partners should possess the ability to consistently apply uniform barrier coatings to the inside and outside of military-size truck and trailer tires. Tires will be aged according to the appropriate industry standard, and then evaluated for physical properties.
Another goal of this project is to apply the tire storage coating to tires for road wheel durability testing. Partners should have the ability to perform these tests or have a working relationship with third parties that can perform tests appropriate for this project.
Those interested in participating in this project should contact Lisa Stobierski by September 21, 2017. We encourage participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), including Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).
