Development of a Test Method: Evaluating Nonskid Performance under Thermal Loading

From JPCL, November 2019

By Colton Spicer, Cameron Miller, Jimmy Tagert and John Wegand, Naval Research Laboratory; and Dr. Erick Alley, Naval Surface Warfare Center

Military performance specification, MIL-PRF-24667, governs the vetting and qualification of nonskid systems for the Navy. When the current nonskid system was introduced in 1971, the primary focus was to develop a nonskid system durable enough to withstand extended periods of atmospheric exposure and mechanical damage from routine ship operations. However, as Navy technology has evolved and next-generation weapon systems have been deployed, high-temperature resistance has emerged as a new nonskid requirement for coating manufacturers when selecting raw materials for new formulations. The authors describe the NRL’s development of a new test method for evaluating temperature-resistance of new nonskid coating formulations....
