Abstract
Our main objective will be to develop a single component chemical agent resistant primer which has performance suitable for U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) land based equipment as a drop-in replacement for the current exterior primers while having zerovolatile organic compounds (VOCs). UDC will formulate environmentally friendly, chemical agent resistant latex with coupling agents. This material will be compatible with brush and conventional air-atomized spray application methods. Full curedperformance of the final primer formulation will be obtainable at ambient room temperature conditions within 2 to 3 days. These primers will be applied on aluminum 2024T3 and steel 1010 substrates for lab testing. The primed substrates will be testedfor chemical agent resistance, bond strength, corrosion protection and abrasion resistance. At the end of Phase I, we will provide a report with results and conclusions Phase II plan and cost estimate. This program will provide a single componentenvironmentally friendly chemical agent resistant primer. This technology will be utilized by the architectural, industrial maintenance, and transportation industries for the painting of equipment requiring high chemical and weathering resistance,particularly where ambient curing and the use of standard application equipment is desired.
