Self-Activate Corrosion Inhibitor
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel, low-cost corrosion inhibiting material that self activates when exposed to moisture and is compatible with common manufacturing process. The primary goal is to enhance corrosion inhibition techniques at the manufacturing level and provide design engineering with the capability of built-in protection and thus, better control of overall life-cycle costs. A proven system will allow for significant reductions in costs incurred. The result of this project will have application to virtually all military weapons systems. American Metal Processing (AMPRO) is a leader in metallurgical processes, corrosion management and corrosion inhibitor development. AMPRO has an established database of unique corrosion management and corrosion inhibitor systems and companies that will be targeted for the investigation. AMPRO will effectively use its extensive research base from previous corrosion research to quickly preview the entire industry and to strenuously test and reformulate state-of-the-art products. Substantial university resources are available to test, evaluate and help improve existing technologies.
