Abstract : The results reported herein represent the work performed during a second year of effort in this area. The overall objective was the development of effective and practical treatments for metal aircraft surfaces, which would confer a high degree of corrosion resistance and enhance the adhesion of military specification epoxy paints to the surfaces. The approach was based on the concept that selected chelating agents would chemically bond to an aluminum (or other metal) surface and, if appropriately substituted with epoxide reactive groups, would also tie into the paint coating.
