The Air Force requires the development of an environmentally compliant chromate-free aircraft coating system that meets or exceeds current corrosion protection capabilities. A number of non-chromated pretreatments and primers have been independently developed over the past years. This report compares the corrosion resistance performance of selected fully non-chromate systems to the standard chromate containing coating system. The data identified two non-chromated systems that performed comparably to the standard chromated aircraft coating system.
