NanoSonic, who specializes in advanced materials research, has developed an easily applied Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)-free HybridSil® corrosion resistant steel (CRES) pipe leak repairing resin that readily seals pipes, withstanding continuous pressures beyond 350 psi within aviation jet fuel (JP-5) piping systems, and prevents exterior crevice corrosion during ASTM B117 salt fog corrosion testing. For leaking CRES fuel pipes on Naval ships, this repair works in areas with limited working envelopes and cures within 20-minutes. In a controlled environment, NanoSonic has repaired actively leaking CRES pipe sections, demonstrating patch durability for 40+ hours at 350 psi within recirculating JP-5 closed loop assemblies while passing Navy fuel purity requirements after extended JP-5 exposure. NanoSonic seeks to become the sole source supplier of its ceramic copolymer pipe repair kits and is currently working to provide its kits through the GSA Schedule.
NanoSonic, an advanced materials company has developed the HybridSil Ice Protective Coating (IPC), a one-part nanocomposite coating, which provides near-term ice buildup protection for U.S. Navy ships during arctic missions; offering excellent ice shedding performance, with the added benefits of environmental durability and corrosion protection. HybridSil IPC coated surfaces exhibit drastically reduced ice adhesion which enables fast, effortless ice removal. HybridSil IPC’s easily spray deposited within a broad spectrum of environments, and is suitable for in-the-field application and repair of NanoSonic’s existing commercially available HybridShield Icephobic topcoats. HybridSil’s innovative combination of previously unavailable MIL-PRF-24635E Type V environmental durability and retained ice protective performance exceeds currently available coatings. NanoSonic seeks identification of and opportunities to showcase HybridSil ICP on Navy platforms that’d benefit from ice protection.
