Abstract : The Zero Discharge Organic Coatings (ZDOC) R&D project will substantially advance coatings technology through the development of high performance zero-discharge coating systems. Development efforts are proceeding on three coating technologies, powder paint, Ultraviolet (UV) curable paint and electro-coating (E-coat) paint. These three paint technologies offer the potential of high performance coatings with no volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions or hazardous waste generation. These three technologies and their associated application processes will be applicable to a wide variety of military equipment and structures, thereby eliminating volatile organic compound (VOC's) and toxic heavy metals from coatings and painting operations. The ZDOC team of Hughes Aircraft Company, Lehigh University, University of Arizona, and the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Warminster offers a blend of experience, expertise, and capabilities in all aspects of organic coatings technology. This quarterly report reviews the team's technical activities and results during the period January 1995 - March 1995. jg
