Abstract
ICE PHOBIC COATING MATERIAL, CURRENTLY USED BY THE U.S. NAVY SURFACE SHIPS OPERATING IN ARCTIC REGIONS AND NORTH AATLANTIC, IS ENVIRONMENTALLY UNSTABLE, PRASITIC, AND SACRIFICIAL IN NATURE. THIS PAPER PRESENTS A TECHNICAL APPROACH IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIFFERENT TYPE OF TOP COAT/PAINT THAT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY STABLE, MAINTENANCE FREE WITH BUILT-IN RESISTANCE TO ICE AND FROST ACCERTION OR FORMATION BY MODIFYING CURRENT MARINE PAINT SYSTEMS SPECIFIED PER MILITARY STANDARDS, MIL-P-24441 (SH). THE PAPER DEFINES COATING MATERIAL PROPERTY REQUIREMENTS AND MATERIAL SELECTION CRITERIA. COATING SYSTEM FORMULATION AND PROCESS ARE BEING DISCUSSED. THE PAPER ALSO ADDRESSES PROOF-OF-CONCEPT TESTS AND FUTURE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORT IN OPTIMIZING THE COATING SYSTEM FROM PERFORMANCE AND COST STAND POINT.
