Abstract
The Navy and other DoD components require a media-free, environmentally friendly, rapid, and non-destructive method to remove coatings applied on and aboard Navy ships. Atmospheric Plasma Solutions Inc. (APS) has developed an atmospheric plasma process to accomplish this goal. Current processes for the removal of coatings for shipboard applications are expensive, require massive amounts of energy, and are potentially damaging to the environment. APS has previously demonstrated the effectiveness of its ionized atmospheric plasma process in the quick and efficient removal of coatings from a wide variety of aerospace related metal and temperature-sensitive substrates. This atmospheric plasma removal process should be adaptable to service naval and marine coating formulations as well. A modest amount of electricity and a low pressure air source are the only support materials required for the process to operate. The APS process is inherently scalable to meet the coating removal needs of both large and small applications alike, field repair applications as well as large scale dry-dock operations.
