Abstract: Orion Solutions is pleased to submit a recently developed nanotechnology based coating to protect the undersea tow cable from corrosion issues identified in solicitation N131-035. Launched in Q2 2012, Ultra-Ever Dry coating and coating process allow use on non-traditional surfaces such as fabrics, plastics and cabling or glass. The superhydrophobic and oleophobic properties have numerous benefits on substrate including corrosion prevention. Regenerative characteristics of the coating prevent wetting of the surface or substrate and prevent the salt corrosion. This response to the solicitation offers a number of tests both lab and field based to qualify the characteristics and suitability for specified purpose.
Benefits: While solving the initial problem related to corrosion on the Nitronic-50 cable, the end result would be MIL-SPEC product tested and available for broader use for on equipment, ships and aircraft for the Department of Defense and Coast Guard with specific emphasis on corrosion prevention and cost reductions related to ongoing corrosion prevention practices. The coating where applied will also reduce the fire hazard risks and reduce the risk of slip related injuries from spills.
