Abstract : The overall objective of the program was to develop and test a surface cleaning/preparation and corrosion resistant protective polymer coating for the interior of the AEDC Environment Test Facility ferrous metal air supply ducts. The types of cleaning techniques acceptable to the AEDC were basically limited to chemical approaches. Typically, sand or abrasive blasting is used to produce corrosion-free, clean surfaces for coating steel substrates. These particular techniques are strongly discouraged and basically 'outlawed' at the AEDC facilities. Water blasting is an acceptable technique, but requires a high pressure water stream, expensive equipment, and considerable clean up.... Coating steel substrates, Polymer coating, Supply ducts.
