Abstract:

This report covers the development of an experimental low cost green solar reflectant and low visibility coating for use on missile systems. The currently specified enamel based on a special and single source pigment, cobalt titanate, has a raw material cost of approximately 9 per gallon compared to 1. 50 per gallon for the experimental material. In addition the test data indicated the experimental material to have a 2 - 3F. advantage over the currently specified material. Exterior exposure and field tests are in progress.
