Abstract : This effort evaluates bioinspired coatings for use in a top-coat type application to identify those technologies that may improve decontamination capabilities for painted surfaces. This report details results for evaluation of a plasma treatment developed at Edgewood Chemical Biological Center for the deposition of fluoropolymers. Retention of the simulants paraoxon, methyl salicylate, dimethyl methylphosphate, and diisopropyl fluorophosphates following treatment of contaminated surfaces with a soapy water solution is reported. Wetting behaviors for the treatment were also evaluated using sessile, sliding, and shedding contact angle measurements.
