Abstract:

As part of a tri-Service effort funded by the Environmental Security Technology Demonstration Program ESTCP, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory ARL-patented water-dispersible WD chemical agent resistant coating CARC has undergone technology demonstrationvalidation demval testing at U.S. Department of Defense depot facilities in order to verify its performance when applied in a production environment. The tri-Service team members include ARL the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division representing the Marine Corps and the Air Force Research Laboratory. Demonstrations were held at three depot facilities, one for each of the Services, including Barstow Marine Corps Logistics Base, Ogden Air Logistics Center, and Tobyhanna Army Depot. This ESTCP effort was transitioned from a similar Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program project that consisted of the same team members and was at the laboratory-scale research level. It verified that the WD CARC is essentially a dropin substitute for the current solvent-based CARC because it could be applied and stripped using existing equipment and processes at the depot facilities. This report summarizes the application demval held at the Army demonstration site. Tobyhanna Army Depot during the period of 30 October - l November 2000.
