Abstract
The objective will be to develop nano-scale coatings for protection of electronics and other sensitive items from seawater and fresh water. A thorough analysis of various commercial and academic superhydrophobic nanoscale coatings will be conducted for protection of electronics from salt fog, seawater and fresh water. Coatings will be procured from the commercial marketplace, internally from UDC, and from academia. UDC will develop test methods designed for the evaluation of such coatings and will investigate cost effective application methods for utilizing the technologies. UDC will examine various application and curing methods and their impact on coating performance. The coatings that are mechanically durable and weather resistant will be identified. Coatings will be verified for use up to 100m depths and have good thermal conductivity and low electrical conductivity. A comprehensive report detailing test methods, results will be submitted at the end of Phase I program.
