Abstract:

The operational readiness and life-time of military equipment can be significantly reduced by corrosion. One way of protecting equipment against this process is through the use of corrosion-preventive primers. These primers are composed of a variety of resins, pigments and solvents to produce materials with different properties to cover a broad range of operational environments. Eleven primers conforming to military and federal specifications were tested on steel and aluminum specimens. Properties such as corrosion protection, adhesion, flexibility and chemical resistance were determined for each primer. The results of this evaluation indicate a wide variety of performance properties for the eleven primers. This information is presented to enable the reader to choose a material with the most appropriate properties for a specific use.
