Abstract:

The overall goal of the program was to develop antistatic coatings for use on aircraft radomes. The required properties are High flash resistance High erosion resistance and Moderate surface conductance. Conductive coatings utilizing white oxide pigments have been prepared with low pigment volume concentration by forcing the pigment into chain form and depositing SnO2 on the chains to provide permanency. The chains were formed in an electric field. The chains when incorporated into a vehicle provide conductive paths at low pigment volume concentration in the same way that carbon chains provide conductive paths in standard black carbon based conductive coatings. Keywords Flocculation White coatings.
