Development of High Temperature Solid Lubricant Coatings

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF97T006
Budget: 07/01/97 - 06/30/98
PI: Dr. Paul Sutor PhD

The US Air Force requires solid lubricant coatings with friction coefficients at or below 9.1 from 25¦C to 815¦C. Surfaces Research has developed the first bonded coating to meet this goal. Other Surface Research coatings are close to meeting this goal.The first objective of this program is to develop the parameters for sputter deposition of t...

Advanced Military Diesel Engine Tribology

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A93-337
Budget: 03/14/96 - 03/14/98
PI: Dr. Paul Sutor PhD

Advanced law heat rejection (LHR) diesel engine performance and life expectancy are limited almost entirely by performance of engine lubrication systems. Recent Surfaces Research work for TACOM produced the first diesel engine lubricants that can operate at the high temperatures of uncooled LHR engines. In our successful Phase I SBIR work. new...

Improved Threaded Fastener Coatings for Turbine Engine Applications

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF93-158
Budget: 01/03/95 - 12/31/96
PI: Dr. Paul Sutor PhD

The objective of this Phase II SBIR program is to furter develop improved coatings for turbine engine threaded fasteners that will prevent seizure upon removal for maintenance. Most engine hot section fasteners currently use silver plate as an antiseize coating. Silver must be replaced. It is known to be a cause of galvanic and stress corrosio...

High Temperature Military Diesel Tribology System

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A91-100
Budget: 09/01/93 - 09/01/95
PI: Dr. Paul Sutor PhD

Advanced low heat rejection diesel engine performance and life expectancy have been limited almost entirely by performance of the engine lubricant. Prior to Surface Research's work on Phase I of this program, no advanced diesel engine lubricant was able to even approach meeting the severe high-temperature requirements of the uncooled U.S. Army ...
