Abstract:

The purpose of the project was to develop an airfield runway marking system that would be superior to systems presently utilized. A high-molecular-weight, linear Bisphenol polyether was developed. A balanced ketonic-alcoholic-aromatic hydrocarbon solvent was found to be the most effective solvent to give rapid through-dry, flexibility, and a minimum of reactivity with the substrate. Three different antiskid additives were studied as well as a siloxane-type additive to improve bead retention and adhesion of the coating to the substrate. A styrene acrylate and a chlorinated rubber alkyd have also been evaluated. Author
