Contract: N68335-12-C-0264
Award Amount: $80,000.00


Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to develop and characterize self-healing, corrosion-protective polymer coatings. CRG's demonstrated expertise in the proposed technology areas presents the Navy with the opportunity to obtain a self-healing coating resulting in enhanced reliability, reduced down time, and reduced maintenance and repair costs. The proposing team's track record of innovation of new materials positions CRG for successful implementation of non-catalytic, self healing coatings meeting Navy operational needs. CRG will mature and combine established chemistry based on low temperature 4+2 pericyclic reaction mechanisms. When incorporated into a self healing motif, this chemistry will lead to the autonomous recovery of anticorrosion properties in the damaged polymer coating without the application of heat or the use of catalysts.
