Abstract:

Reflective floor coatings improve illumination in aircraft maintenance hangars but they often have poor slip resistance or lose their slip resistance and thereby pose safety hazards and maintenance problems. Coating system designs have been investigated in field trials to provide a basis for the selection of coating systems of improved performance. Emphasis of the research has been to find methods of reducing the slipperiness and increasing the longevity and reflectivity of the coatings, and to determine the optimum designs for coating systems that provide satisfactory performance. Reflective coatings for hangar floors can be thin-film coating systems, thick-film coating systems, or organic toppings.
