Abstract : The ESTCP project WP-200614 completed the work associated with transitioning the Low Temperature Cure Powder Coating (PC) (LTCPC) into use at U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) maintenance facilities. This project accomplished the following major milestones: (1) conduct additional testing and evaluation of the candidate material to more thoroughly characterize performance (beyond the testing and substrates used in the previous Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program [SERDP] project PP-1268) utilizing a Joint Test Protocol (JTP); (2) demonstrate the improvements in the coating process and the superior operational performance of the PC on aircraft components and ground support equipment; (3) validate the environmental benefits associated with the LTCPC on aircraft components and ground support equipment; (4) quantify the cost, logistics, and performance parameters of baseline coating methods for Air Force and Navy logistics centers and demonstrate the cost savings potential for transitioning to LTCPC; and (5) coordinate and facilitate technology transition of the low temperature process into governing documents (e.g., MIL-PRF-24712 and coatings related technical orders) and actual depot operations.
