Title: THREE SURFACE FLUORINATION PROCESSES FOR THE MODIFICATION OF TRANSPARENT PLASTICS STUDY
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $497,000.00
 

Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DIRECT FLUORINATION OF TRANSPARENT PLASTIC MATERIALS TO IMPROVE THE ATMOSPHERIC DEGRADATION AND SOLVENT RESISTANCE FOR USE IN AIRCRAFT WINDSHIELDS AND WINDOWS. THREE LABORATORY DEMONSTRATED PROCESSES: DIRECT FLUORINATION, PLASMA ACTIVATED FLUORINATION, AND PLASMA POLYMERIZATION WILL BE INVESTIGATED IN DETAIL. REACTION CONDITIONS WILL BE OPTIMIZED THROUGH THE USE OF DESIGNED EXPERIMENTS AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF THE SURFACE FLUORINATIONS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH DETAILED X-RAY PHOTOELECTRON SPECTROSCOPY STUDIES TO DETERMINE DEPTH OF FLUORINATION, FLUORINATION LEVELS, AND CHEMISTRY OF THE FLUORINATION. ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING WILL INCLUDE SUNLIGHT, HUMIDITY, AND SOLVENT EXPOSURE.
