The sixth 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 in Orlando from December 6-8.

 

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
    • Zinc-Nickel
    • Cadmium-Chromium
    • 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. Please see the link and reservation information below. The associated registration fee will be used to offset the cost of lunch and refreshment breaks.

 

Request for Presentations/Posters: Please submit your briefing, poster, or technical idea to Keith Legg or Robin Nissan.

Group Name: ASETSDefense
Group Code: 1612USOD MEETING REGISTRATION - $115.00
HOTEL RESERVATION prior to the deadline: 11 October 2016 (Booked separately from Hotel)
*A military ID will not be required to gain access to the facility

 

This Workshop has been approved by Mr. Frank Kendall (Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics). An invitation letter to that effect will be made available for DoD participants upon request to Braxton Lewis (Subject: ASETSDefense 2016 Workshop).

 

Advanced Surface Engineering Technologies for a Sustainable Defense – ASETSDefense - is a Department of Defense (DoD) initiative sponsored by the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). Its objective is to facilitate the implementation of new, environmentally friendly technologies for surface engineering (coatings and surface treatments) by providing ready access to background information and technical data from research, development, test, and evaluation efforts as well as the status of approvals and implementations. ASETSDefense provides defense organizations with information and assistance to improve weapons system performance and life-cycle cost while reducing or eliminating environmental safety and occupational health (ESOH) impacts from coatings and treatment processes that utilize hexavalent chromium (hex chrome, Cr6+, Cr(VI), chromate, chromic acid); coatings that contain cadmium; and coatings that contain volatile organic compounds (VOC).

  • Chromium-free Etching and Palladium-free Plating of Plastics

    Plastics are replacing metals in the manufacture of many parts, and quite often there is a need for metallic coatings on the plastics and other non-conductors. This paper will describe new processes of preparing ABS plastic substrates for subsequent metallization.

  • Plating Process Control

    The cornerstone of quality and productivity for any finishing operation, process control is a plater’s key to success. To find out how far techniques have come, where they’re headed in the future, and how platers can raise the bar, Products Finishing convened a panel of experts for a roundtable discussion on the topic. With well over 100 years of combined plating experience, experts Greg Arneson, Art Kushner, Peter Gallerani and Joelie Zak share their thoughts.

  • Test Methods For Evaluating Anodized Aluminum

    Benefits of anodizing include durability, color stability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics, cost of initial finish and the fact that it is a safe and healthy process. Maximizing these benefits to produce a high–performance aluminum finish can be accomplished by incorporating test procedures in the manufacturing process.
