Cr-FREE SUPERHYDROPHOBIC TOPCOAT AND PRIMERS

Session 1: Aerospace/Defense Response to REACh

Abstract Number: 

121

Topics/Keywords:

General Surface Finishing, Aerospace and Defense

This presentation will benefit the audience by providing insight ‎into converting from hexavalent ‎chromium (Cr) based primers to a ‎Cr-free superhydrophobic topcoat and primer coating stack up. At ‎‎the end of this presentation, the audience will understand the ‎exceptional benefits of ‎superhydrophobic technology, including ‎increased cleanability, increased chemical resistance ‎improved ‎corrosion resistance, and reduced drag. The audience will also ‎understand this technology ‎decreases maintenance, is easier to ‎handle, and results in material and equipment cost savings.‎

DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM-FREE ‎‎ALUMINUM SACRIFICIAL PAINT

Session 1: Aerospace/Defense Response to REACh

Abstract Number: 

23

Topics/Keywords:

Aerospace/Defense/Military

The research and development of any coating system is time ‎consuming and fraught with ‎failure. When success is achieved in ‎an area as challenging as the aerospace industry demands, it is ‎‎valuable to summarize and reflect on the process. ‎

DIRECT ELECTRODEPOSITION OF Ni/Ni ALLOYS ONTO ‎ALUMINUM AFTER ONE STEP SURFACE ‎PRETREATMENT

Session 1: Aerospace/Defense Response to REACh

Abstract Number: 

36

Topics/Keywords:

Advances in Research
Advances in Surface Finishing Technology

Neutrino Focusing Horns; required for research on particle ‎accelerators and storage rings, are ‎commonly made of aluminum ‎and coated using electroless nickel. Faraday has demonstrated a ‎‎technology that will provide an alternative direct deposition onto ‎aluminum that reduces the cost, ‎chemical volume and complexity ‎of the process. The technology is adaptable to applications that ‎‎require electrodeposited coatings on passive metals such as ‎aluminum, titanium and stainless steels.‎
