Abstract
Integument will utilize a unique nanoinfusion technology that allows us to effectively coat Carbon Nanotubes (CNT's)with various environmentally benign corrosion inhibitors. In addition, Integument Technologies will team with Boyce Components, in order to demonstrate a proprietary mixing technology that allows us to effectively blend CNT's Carbon Fibers and Carbon platelets into various polymeric resins including aircraft grade urethane and epoxy paints. Our proposed Phase I effort will fabricate an epoxy polyamide primer coating system having CNT's functionalized with corrosion inhibitors. the objective is to meet Navy requirements specified by MIL-PRF-23377J for a primer coating system that is environmentally benign with superior corrosion protection.
