Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN SBIR PROJECT TO PREPARE NOVEL PRIMERS FOR BONDING TO UNPREPARED HYDROPHILIC SUBSTRATES SUCH AS STEEL, ALUMINUM, AND TITANIUM AND TO COMPOSITES. THE PRIMERS WILL BE PREPARED FROM ORGANOFUNCTIONAL SILANE AND ZIRCO-ALUMINATE COUPLING AGENTS AND FROM POLYMERIZABLE PHOSPHATE COMPOUNDS AND WILL BE DESIGNED TO REACT WITH MOISTURE AT THE SUBSTRATE SURFACE AND TO REPEL ADDITIONAL MOISTURE FROM THE INTERFACE. WEDGE TESTS CONDUCTED IN AGGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTS WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE THE MECHANISMS BY WHICH THE PRIMERS INTERACT WITH THE SUBSTRATES AND TO DETERMINE THE FAILURE MECHANISMS OF THE WEDGE TEST SPECIMENS. THE RESULTS WILL BE USED TO SELECT SPECIFIC PRIMERS FOR ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
