Title Low Volatile Organic Compound Containing Wash Primer for Letterkenny Army Depot.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 44p
Personal Author D. Pope F. Lafferman J. Escarsega
Abstract Currently, only wash primer conforming to military specification DOD- P-15328 is authorized to be used as a spray in place pretreatment for multi metal applications prior to the application of the chemical agent resistant coatings (CARC) systems. Pennsylvania State Environmental regulations regulate the volume of volatile organic compounds in coatings such as DOD-P- 15328, Wash Primer Pretreatment. Laboratory testing was conducted with two experimental wash primers and evaluated for performance as compared to the baseline, DOD-P- 15328. These experimental wash primers were formulated with lower percentages of volatile organic compounds to comply with Pennsylvania State laws. Laboratory testing indicates that these products provide equal performance to DOD-P-15328, but final approval for implementation will be based upon outdoor exposure testing at Cape Canaveral and a demonstration at Letterkenny Army Depot in Chambersburg, PA.
