Abstract
THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS CONCERNED WITH FIRMLY ESTABLISHING THE VIABILITY OF ELECTROACTIVE COATINGS THAT USE CATHODIC CORROSION MECHANISMS TO PROTECT METALS AGAINST CORROSION. THE COATINGS MAY BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH IMPRESSED CURRENT CATHODIC PROTECTION TO UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTE PROTECTION AND TO EXTEND PROTECTION INTO CREVICES AND INTO SPLASH ZONES. DIFFERENT REDOX COUPLE/POLYMER COATINGS SYSTEMS WILL BE DEVELOPED AND TESTED. IN ADDITION TO TESTING CATHODIC ELECTROACTIVE COATINGS, SANDWICH FORMULATIONS INVOLVING CONDUCTIVE COATINGS WILL BE TESTED FOR EXTENDING THE ANODE PORTION OF THE IMPRESSED CURRENT CATHODIC SYSTEMS.
