Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO THE NAVY'S NEED FOR NON-PROPRIETARY BONDING SYSTEMS FOR NEOPRENE-TO-METAL VULCANIZED BONDS. THE APPROACH OFFERED IS TO BEGIN WITH THE CHEMLOC 205/220 AND OTHER EXISTING PROPRIETARY AND NON-PROPRIETARY FORMULATIONS, TO ESTABLISH THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CERTAIN MODIFICATIONS THEREOF TO IMPROVE CATHODIC DELAMINATION RESISTANCE. THE MODIFICATIONS PROPOSED INCLUDE ADDITIONSOF REACTIVE COUPLINGG AGENTS SUCH AS ORGANOSILANES AND POTENTIAL OH RESISTIVE ORGANIC ACID GROUPS SUCH AS PHENOLICS AND NAPTHOICS. A THIRD SET OF MODIFICATIONS TO THE SYSTEM AS A WHOLE ARE TREATMENTS OF THE METAL ADHEREND SURFACES TO RENDER THEM NON-CATALYTIC TO THE CATHODIC REACTIONS RESPONSIBLE FOR DELAMINATION. THE MATERIALS TO BE USED IN THIS PROJECT ARE NEOPRENE 5109 OR 5109S, ALUMINUM ALLOY 6061-T6, AISI 1026 CARBON STEEL AND MONEL.
