Title: Nanostructured High Performance Ultrahydrophobic Coatings by Combustion CVD

Contract: FA9550-05-C-0119
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

nGimat Co., in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to utilize the Combustion CVD process for the development and production of high performance self-cleaning coatings for military structures. The self-cleaning coatings will be based in part on the ultrahydrophobic nature of the lotus leaf, but with a focus on improving durability to a level not previously seen in nature or coatings developed by other technologies. Specifically, the flexibility of nGimat's Combustion CVD process will enable the development of thin film microstructures, architectures, and compositions that provide improved abrasion resistance and weatherability without compromising the ultrahydrophobic nature. Once the desired performance has been achieved (Phase I), the inherent sustainability (scalability, low-cost) of the Combustion CVD process will be demonstrated through the production of low cost, high performance coatings for a wide variety of military products.
