ANTI-SWEAT PAINT

 

Anti-Sweat Paint

Problem: If not properly covered, cold metal surfaces in ships can produce condensate which results in liquid build-up, corrosion, and unnecessary cleanup requirements.

Solution: New commercially available "latex/ceramic" paints claim to significantly reduce condensation and corrosion. These products will be tested against existing standard Navy anti-condensate paints.

Benefits

 

Estimated Navy Cost Avoidance:

Minimum annual:       $30 K

Minimum 15 Year:   $450 K

 

Fleet Impact: There is currently a great deal of confusion by Fleet personnel and engineers about these Ceramic products. This project will quantitatively determine the validity of the manufacturer's claims.

 

Status: Complete

The MTTC-sponsored testing at Naval Research Laboratory has been completed. Additional testing, by NAVSEA on an AEGIS Cruiser, has been completed. the Navy has concluded that no additional benefit is derived by the use of this coating.
