Single-Component Polysiloxane Topcoat for Navy Surface Ships

by Erick Iezzi and James Tagert, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory

This article details a recently developed, novel moisture-curable, haze gray single-component (1K) polysiloxane topcoat for U.S. Navy surface ships. The topcoat is low in VOCs, HAPs-free and provides excellent hydrocarbon resistance, flexibility and weatherability.
