Abstract:

Development of a unique class of coating material systems for passive temperature control surfaces is described. Certain alkali silicate-based all-inorganic coating systems offer considerable promise for current longterm applications in this area of space technology. The major objective of this program is the development of coating systems with stable alphaepsilon values of less than 0.30 after 2,000 to 6,000 sun-hour exposures under space environmental conditions, with lesser emphasis in systems with alphaepsilon values of up to 1.20.
