Abstract:

Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a single tough thermoplastic polymer coating material and system solution for aluminum and composite boat hulls. The coating functions as an adhesive for attaching doubler plates. It encapsulates and prevents water from corroding metal substrates plus it is hydrophobic and can include corrosion inhibitors and colorant. Basic polymer components are tough thermoplastics which are intrinsically impact resistant and abrasion resistant. Thermoplastic coatings are field repairable using a heat gun. No solvents chemical mixing is required. Technical work entails procuring aluminum and composite test specimens, formulating several different coating materials, test and evaluation. Programmatic work will compare the proposed solution to current practice and estimate a cost benefit to the government. A preliminary experiment and extending Resodyn Corporation"s existing Polymer Thermo Spray technology suggests a high likelihood of success.
