Chitosan-based Foul-release Coatings for Aquaculture

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: M. Alex Walsh, Director of Research
Award Amount: $49,950.00
Abstract:
Rapid biofouling of aquaculture netting necessitates frequent cleaning. Cleaning by scrubbing or pressure washing can consume as much as 40% of total labor. Chemical methods of biofouling control are not approved for the aquaculture industry. Silicone elastomers that release biofouling have been… More

Chitosan-Based, Foul-Release Coatings

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: M. Alex Walsh, Director of Research
Award Amount: $199,958.00
Abstract:
Rapid biofouling of aquaculture netting necessitates frequent cleaning. Cleaning by scrubbing or pressure washing can consume as much as 40% of total labor. Chemical methods of biofouling control are not approved for the aquaculture industry. Silicone elastomers that release biofouling have been… More

Copper-Free Antifouling Coatings

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: M. Alex Walsh
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Copper compounds have been used for centuries in marine antifoulants to inhibit biofouling. This anthropogenic copper is a potential problem in confined basins and in regions that experience limited mixing. In this research project, E Paint Company will explore the feasibility of developing novel… More

Ice-Phobic Clearcoat to Improve Aircraft and Pilot Safety

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Alex Walsh, President
Award Amount: $99,903.00
Abstract:
Ice-shedding clearcoats are proposed based on transparent materials having large solid-solid phase changes. Phase I develops candidate coating formulations and evaluates their performance as military topcoats for aircraft. Tests are planned to demonstrate concept feasibility. These include of… More

Ice-Phobic Clearcoat to Improve Aircraft and Pilot Safety

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: M. A. Walsh, President
Award Amount: $747,872.00
Abstract:
Novel anti-icing/deicing additives were discovered in Phase I with robust low ice adhesion properties. Coatings formulated with these additives yield smooth, durable, transparent films that control ice accretion and significantly reduce ice adhesion. These coatings are easy to apply and remove by… More

Eco-friendly Surface Chemistries for the Inhibition of Biofouler Glue Polymerization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Alex Walsh, President – (508) 540-4412
Award Amount: $79,998.00
Abstract:
This research effort will result in an environmentally compliant and cost effective means of controlling biofouling that will significantly reduce the environmental impacts of maritime activities and result in a"Greener Navy". Phase I investigates the feasibility of developing biologically… More

SBIR Phase I: Functionalized Coating Chemistries for the Environment-Responsible Control of Barnacle Biofouling

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Myles A. Walsh
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will address the market-driven need for environmentally compatible marine antifouling coating technologies that outperform the state-of-the-art. Increasing environmental regulations have led to the banning of the most effective marine… More
