AbstractThe Air Force is actively pursuing a reduction and eventual elimination of the volume of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions generated during aircraft coating operations. Resodyn Corporation proposes the development of the zero VOC (ZCOV) coating system that consists of thermally applied engineered thermoplastics. The enabling technology will be Resodyn Corporation’s Low Temperature Powder Coating (LTPSC) process which has the capability of applying low melt temperature polymers without causing thermal degradation. Preliminary testing demonstrates the ability to create adherent coatings while maintaining low temperature exposure to the aluminum alloy substrates. This technology has the potential for use in either aircraft repair, maintenance or manufacturing facilities. The process is environmentally friendly (i.e., VOC free) when creating protective coatings directly from dry powder. The process is intrinsically safe and does not depend on an open flame or flammable gasses.
