Abstract:

The Splash Zone is defined as the area between the years lowest tidal mark and up to ten feet above the years highest tidal mark. Early SBIR funded studies of the SBIR developed polysulfide modified novolac epoxy formulation renamed Zero VOC, Coal Tar Free Splash Zone Coating SZC indicated that the SZC will provide at least twice the performance compared to the currently specified coating systems. This demonstration provides a full scale validation of the SZC for use as an in-service waterfront maintenance system and enables the transition of this coal tar free coating directly into the hands of DOD end users who require waterfront metal e.g., sea walls, sheet pile maintenance painting. This project addresses performance and environmental requirements for sustainment and reduction of VOC and HAP emissions due to the SZC being free of toxic metals, hazardous air pollutant free, contains no coal tar pitch, and has zero VOCs.
