Boyd Coatings Research Co. Inc. has developed the CRC 6000-line Hydrophobic Coating, a customized coating used for communication installations, seagoing vessels and aircraft.

CRC 6000 is designed to resist corrosion, abrasion, chemicals and impact, and to be self-cleaning in most environments.

Applications

CRC 6000 is used primarily on radar housing domes (radomes), satellite dishes and other communication installations to prevent water film from building up and hindering signals. The manufacturer says the product is currently employed on ground installations in every climate, from deserts to the arctic; it is also used on seagoing vessels and on rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.

 The coating is suitable for communication installations, seagoing vessels and aircraft.

The coating is suitable for communication installations, seagoing vessels and aircraft. It is now being used in desert and arctic environments.

Additionally, CRC 6000 has CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) properties, which make it suitable for military applications.

CRC 6000 can be applied by conventional air, airless or air-assisted airless spray methods. It can also be brushed or rolled onto small areas, making it appropriate for field or plant use.

Features and Characteristics

CRC 6000 is a solid dispersion of fluorocarbon polymer and an aliphatic, moisture-cure, two-part polyurethane that creates a hard film designed for superior UV resistance and long-term water repellency.

The coating was designed to create a high contact angle (140+ degrees) for water droplets, allowing water to roll off and leave a perfectly dry surface. CRC 6000 thus minimizes signal attenuation, especially at 44 GHz and 21GHz, which traditionally results from surface water accumulation, the manufacturer says.

CRC 6000 can be applied directly to most composite substrates (including DuPont Tedlar and reinforced epoxies) and, with appropriate primers, to virtually any surface.

The flat-finish coating is available in standard white, light gray, custom-color matches and Federal Standard 595 colors.

Based in Hudson, MA, Boyd Coatings Research manufactures, applies and distributes custom-developed, high-performance coatings, specializing in the medical, industrial and aerospace markets. The company is more than 45 years old.
