The overall objective of this SERDP-supported program WP-1425 was to investigate the use of chemical vapor deposition CVD to produce high quality tantalum Ta coatings for wear and erosion protection of medium caliber gun barrels. In addition to offering an environmentally benign alternative to chromium Cr plating, this relatively low temperature process proved to provide high throughput, low cost, conformal step coverage, and coatings with desirable properties and performance.
