Abstract
"US Naval piers and offshore drilling platforms are common steel structures located in marine splash zones around the world. To provide adequate use life, these structures must be protected from persistent corrosion, with current coatings considered to beinadequate to meet the end-user's needs for protection and time between maintenance re-coats. TRI/Austin proposes development and production of a novel polysulfide-Novolac epoxy paint designed to be impact and abrasion resistant and have a useful life farin excess of currently used materials. A joint venture team consisting of TRI/Austin and Vickers Industrial Coatings will be assembled to develop this new product platform based on products already on the market. This team of coating engineers,scientists, and NACE professionals is highly motivated to bring this product into its current product line and is committed to demonstrating product scale-ability in manufacturing as a deliverable of the Phase I effort. The proposed work will result indevelopment of an improved corrosion prevention coating for steel structures in the marine splash zone. This market represents significant business potential for members of the joint venture. The product to be developed will also provide a platform fromwhich other markets can be derived such as storage tank and chemical reactor vessel linings, waste water effluent pipe lining, military hardware protective coatings, military and commercial ship
