SBIR Phase I: BioBased Coatings for Corrosion Protection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Shilpa Manjure, DPhil
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is designed to prepare and evaluate novel biobased corrosion protection coatings derived from modified soy oil that quickly cures upon exposure to atmospheric moisture yielding smooth protective films. This cure mechanism is based on the well… More
