Research Institution
American Energy Technologies Co. (a woman-owned small business concern of Arlington Heights, IL), will be joined by subcontractorAdvanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin Corp. (St. Paul, MN) in order to develop and fully furnish functional prototypes of two anti-corrosion technologies with the goal to deploy them in a variety of MDA-owned equipment platforms. The first technology is a two-layer top coating which will protect metallic installations. Of primary focus are Zinc-primed steel structures which will be guarded from environmental corrosion by a layer of Zinc-epoxy and specialty pigment-filled polyurethane top sealant. The second aspect of this effort is the development of a new and improved galvanic protection technology which operates under the principle of impressed current cathodic protection. A new design of ultra-low solubility anodes is unveiled. The combined application of both technologies is likely to ensure useful operational life of metal assets exposed to harsh environments on the order of 50 years.
