Abstract:

This report covers a comparison study on the properties of military specification aircraft finishes. Coatings representing olive drab and white gloss and camouflage lusterless specification polyurethane, acrylic, and nitrocellulose-acrylic finishes were investigated. Also included were a one-package, moisture-cure urethane and an experimental urethane-acrylic coating. Based on this study, Specification MIL-C-83286 USAF Coating Urethane, Aliphatic Isocyanate, for Aerospace Application should be used for Army Aircraft where a gloss finish is required and specification MIL-L-81352 AS Lacquer Acrylic for Naval Weapons Systems, where a lusterless finish is required.
