The 6th Workshop on Sustainable Surface Engineering for Aerospace and Defense will be held at Shades of Green®, the Armed Forces Recreation Center at the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort, Orlando, FL December 6-8, 2016.
Increased environmental and occupational, safety, and health regulations in the United States and Europe are impacting the use of chromates, cadmium, and other chemicals in aerospace and defense surface treatments. As a result, the need for environmentally benign alternatives that meet or exceed the performance requirements of currently used materials is becoming increasingly acute. This workshop will cover the topics listed below, addressing all aspects of alternative coatings and surface treatments, with emphasis on performance, service data, approvals and implementation of clean coatings:
- Session 1: Aerospace and Defense Needs and Approaches
- Session 2: Hard Chrome and Other Wear Coatings
- Session 3: Cadmium and Chromate Replacement at Depots and OEMs
- Session 4: Light Materials
- Session 5: Localized Repair
- Session 6: Accelerated Corrosion Testing
- Session 7: Painting and Stripping Contamination Control
- Session 8: Non-Chrome Paint Systems
- Special Side Meetings
- Gun Barrel Coatings
- Renewable Materials for Composites
- Networking and Poster Session
A poster session and side meetings will be held on topics of particular importance to attendees with detailed discussions of the performance and implementation of new technologies.
