Abstract
In the Phase I effort MAST Technologies developed a variety of high temperature coatings that meet or exceed survivability at 680 degrees F for 10 minutes or 1300 degrees F for 10 minutes. 680 degrees F materials are elastomeric in nature and can function as EMI/RF shielding, low dielectric layer, thermally insulating, or ablative overcoat materials. A high-build spray-on formula was developed to address low dielectric layer and thermally insulating materials with survivability at 1300 degrees F. In Phase II MAST Technologies will further characterize, validate, and prototype the materials developed in Phase I. Material integration research and development will be performed to establish processes for bonding, vulcanization, and co-cure bonding of developed elastomers to mock airframe components. Material characterization and validation steps will be taken to further define the mechanical, electrical, thermal, and environmental properties of applicable materials. Manufacturing research and development will allow for efficient, cost-effective scale-up of compression molding, casting, calendaring, and spray processes. Prototype parts will be fabricated and delivered to the customer per application-specific electrical, thermal, and dimensional requirements for further qualification. Throughout Phase II MAST Technologies will focus on transitioning qualified materials to commercialization for use in a multitude of military and commercial applications.
