Abstract
"The goal of the SBIR is to research new and existing protective coating technology and identify the best of the existing or new technologies, or combinations of these technologies to provide protection for aluminum and steel shelters. These technologieswill be assessed for their protective durability against corrosion and abrasion, ease of field application, environmental friendliness, and lifecycle cost effectiveness. Objective analytical measurements will be used to quantitate the performance of thebest technologies. A panel of experts from academia, business and the military will be assembled to assess the performance criteria of the available technologies. Substantial university resources will be available to test, evaluate and help improve thesetechnologies. Modification of existing or new technologies or the use of combinations of technologies may prove most effective in meeting the rigorous standards set forth by this SBIR. The anticipated outcome of this SBIR is clear and objective delineationof performance criteria of the best protective coating technologies for Shelters and other objects with the same substrate surfaces. Further, it will identify the best molecular coating technologies that meet the rugged, environmental, cost effective andfield maintenance standards needed by the military. There are a vast number of objects made of aluminum and sttel by companies around the world and use in similar out-of-doors setting; th
