Abstract : The Navy maintains a number of specifications for the organic coatings applied to aircraft and ground support equipment. These documents are periodically revised and amended to include lessons learned from qualification testing, improvements in the state-of- the-art, and new regulatory requirements. To accomplish these objectives, we will revise ten different specifications by the end of this year. They include: wash primer alkyd primer, epoxy primers, polyurethane primer, acrylic lacquer, temporary, acrylic lacquer, epoxy topcoat, polyurethane topcoat, polyurethane, rain-erosion coating. All of these specifications (including every type and class) will comply with air-pollution regulations that limit the volatile organic compounds (VOC) content. This will be accomplished using water-borne or high-solids coatings technology. The maximum VOC Content will generally be sit at 340 grams/liter for primers and 340-420 grams/liter for other coatings. The use of 1,1,1-trichioroethane (exempt from VOC regulations) will no longer be permitted due to its Classification as an ozone-depleting substance.
