Abstract:

Applied Polymer Systems, Inc (APS) has developed a new plasma spray process capable of applying a polymetric resin binder with high filler levels in coating form over various substrates. The process can be robotically controlled and is environmentally friendly. A vacuum collection system captures vapors, and no solvents are used in the process. The filters can be functional and contribute to surface hardness and durability. The filters can resist the absorption of chemical agents, and can be tailored to quick release if chemical egents are absorbed. Pigments can be added to assist in achieving coloration close to the environment. Stabilizers can be added to increase durability. Six resins which can be either thermosplastic or thermoset, are included in the proposal. Close attention has been paid to maintaining resistance to thermal shock. Multi-layered coatings can be created. Excellent adhesion between layers is noted.
