The report covers activities accomplished to develop an electrophoretic coating method for the application of SERMETEL W to all critical surfaces of the exhaust diffuser, has been classified as the best coating available for corrosion protection. Its application to the complex parts included in this program has not been possible by other conventional means. The development of the electrophoretic methods to coat these parts will greatly extend the corrosion protection now afforded by sprayed-on high- temperature aluminum paint. The design and procurement of coating tanks, power supplies, humidification chambers, and miscellaneous materials was made. Utilizing drawings and sections cut from reject parts obtained from ARADMAC, the design and fabrication of jigs and fixtures were started. Design of three jigs and fixtures was accomplished to take advantage of any radial symmetry of the hardware item and to provide flexibility for modification that may be required in later phases of this program.
