EPVD COATINGS FOR IMPROVEMENT OF GUN BARRELS
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Various attempts have been made to replace electrodeposited chromium applied to internal surfaces of gun barrels. In this activity Advanced Global Services (AGS) will validate a novel coating technique to apply advanced non-hazardous erosion resistant materials to medium caliber gun tubes. The development of unique process parameters to apply advanced coating materials for erosion protection of medium caliber gun tubes and utilization of unique surface preparation methods will ensure a high quality coated surface. Coating application to the ID of the medium caliber gun tubes via utilization of the EPVD technique will allow "surface engineering" of desired coating structures and will significantly increase performance characteristics of weapon systems.
