Abstract
The U.S. Air Force desires an airplane painting procedure that produces powder coating quality without the requirement of putting the whole plane in an oven. Resodyn Corporation proposes an innovative no-bake powder coating process that uses thermal spray techniques to melt and cure polymer powders onto large structures without the need of a curing oven. Related development work and preliminary design indicate a high potential for success. Resodyn Corporation's proposed design depends on precise heat management at various stages of the process resulting in independently controlled heating of the polymer and the substrate. This prevents polymer degradation and overheating of the substrate. The Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of the process by applying common aeronautical coatings on aluminum substrates.
