Abstract : This report covers activities accomplished during Phase IV of a ten (10) month program to develop an electrophoretic coating method for the application of a corrosion-resistant coating to all critical surfaces of the exhaust diffuser, air diffuser and combustion chamber housing of the T-53 Engine. During this phase full scale coating trials were made. Methods were developed for cleaning, coating, humidification and baking of parts. The coated parts were also given a 300 hour salt spray corrosion test. (Author)
