High Temperature Survivability Coating Materials with Innovative Application Processes
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
NAVAIR is currently faced with the challenge of manufacturing specialty coating systems with application-specific electrical and physical properties for installation into areas of complex geometry. MAST Technologies proposes to perform a survey and experimental design (DOE) of high temperature elastomers and demonstrate their ability to be processed into partially cured calendared sheets of defined thicknesses. Processing of candidate materials will be performed via a two-roll mill mixing and calendaring process. MAST Technologies then proposes to demonstrate feasibility of a vulcanization and co-cure bonding application process by which candidate materials will be mixed on a high shear two-roll mill, calendared to a desired thickness, and draped over a composite, metal, or plastic material of complex geometry representative of an end airframe component.
