TDA Research, Inc. and the University of Colorado at Boulder will team together to develop a responsive sequestration coating for chemical warfare agents. The coating will be easily applied to surfaces where it will cover and contain chemical warfare agents on vehicles or other hardware known or suspected to be contaminated. A color change of the coating will indicate locations of underlying surface chemical warfare agent contamination. The agents will be contained in the coating where they will be reactively decontaminated. The coating will be robust, but easily stripped off / peeled off from the underlying surface and it will leave the vehicle / hardware undamaged and fully decontaminated. The deadly agents adsorbed by the film will also be decontaminated automatically. During the coating application process and the period when the coating is left on the vehicle, chemical agent will not be spread to other surfaces nor will it be able to evaporate through the coating. The coating process will not aerosolize the liquid agent on the surface and it will prevent the agent from evaporating to the surrounding air.
