ROBERT MORRIS ARMY ACQUISITION CENTER RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK NC RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK United States
This project seeks to modify Hentzen Crosslink Powder Coatings No. 6191-61003 to support Aerospace Ground Equipment AGE at Pacific Air Force PACAF locations. Hentzen Crosslink Powder Coatings No. 6191-61003 is a commercial-off-the-shelf COTS low temperature powder coating LTPC, which shall be referred to as COTS LTPC herein. The Contractor shall work towards tailoring the COTS LTPC formulation to include i addition of suitable Ultraviolet UV stabilizers to improve weathering performance, ii addition of relevant biocides to mitigate against microbial influenced corrosion MIC and, iii obtain empirical confirmation of improved additive performance through additional laboratory and beachfront testing. The Contractor shall be responsible for the planning and execution of all aspects required to support and successfully complete this effort.
