Research Institution
Mitigation and recovery from an attack with a chemical or biological agent remains an important challenge for the US Defense and Homeland Security. Solicitation topic CBD13-101 envisions a multifunctional sequestration coating that once applied to a contaminated surface will sequester the contaminating agent, disclose the location of agent contamination, detoxify the agent and be removable so as to enable further clean-up and recovery operations. Akita Innovations LLC and FLIR Systems, Enzyme Technology unit (formerly Agentase) will team to develop a chemical agent sequestration coating. Akita will develop a 2 part, 100% solids polyurethane formulation which will polymerize in place to absorb and sequester the agent contaminant. FLIR will provide proven enzymatic technologies for disclosure and decontamination of chemical agents. These will be integrated into the coating formulation for in place disclosure and detoxification of chemical agents. In Phase I of this effort we will demonstrate the ability to sequester and detoxify chemical agent simulants in the coating while preventing breakthrough of the agent through the coating.
