Abstract : Test results and data for achieving a low-outgassing polymer resin suitable for potting or as a vehicle for a paint pigment are presented. The resin, prepared in O.5-kg (1 -lb) batches, is acceptable for spacecraft use; its weight loss is less than 0.5 percent and the volatile condensable materials are less than 0.05 percent. The paint adheres well to a primed fiber glass or aluminum substrate. Results of UV irradiation, electron and proton radiation, and thermal cycling are presented.
