Abstract:

Objective of this project was to develop a family of coatings that could form a gas impermeable film for expedient encapsulation and CB hardening of existing structures, converting them into COLPRO shelters. The developed coatings are based on POLYMERights newly developed patented polysulfides polysulfide polyesters that were proven to provide excellent impermeability to a broad range of CA simulants. The results were confirmed by the independent testing with live HD agent. The created family of quick-curing and easily-applied coatings forms gasvapor-impermeable barrier that rapidly and effectively converts existing structure into a COLPRO shelter.
