This effort evaluates bioinspired coatings for use in a top-coat type application to identify those technologies that may improve decontamination capabilities for painted surfaces. This report details results for variations in the methods and approaches used during the decontamination process, including use of pre-treatment with air or sorbent, increased temperature, alternative surfactants, and pressurized rinse streams. The methods were evaluated on painted aluminum coupons. Retention of the simulants paraoxon, methyl salicylate, dimethyl methylphosphate, and diisopropyl fluorophosphate following treatment of contaminated surfaces is reported.
