Bond-Coat™ Bond-Coat™ is a non-conductive ceramic coating (NCC) that dramatically extends the life of submarine and oil exploration underwater connectors. Developed by TRI for the U.S. Navy to fight cathodic delamination (pre-mature bond failure) of submarine connectors, Bond-Coat™ NCC’s metal pretreatment system is ideal for use in harsh environments such as industrial, sub-sea and down-hole
TRI Marine Grease® Submarine hanger areas have actuated parts, doors, hatches, etc., that must be adequately lubricated to function correctly and extend service life. Dry deck shelter hatches need lubrication on all internal gears and locking ring threads. Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI Austin) has developed an innovative grease approach utilizing fluorohydrocarbon base oil in
TRI SealPlus® TRI SealPlus® is specifically designed for sealing the pores of plasma sprayed ceramic coatings. The cured sealer reduces permeation of reactive species through the ceramic layer to increase durability in marine environments. Metal connectors, and other hardware, are often cathodically protected to reduce corrosion of the metal substrate. The electrical potential difference between substrate
Compressed Air Testing TRI developed a Compressed Air Testing Kit to capture a non-pressurized sample of compressed air at source or Point of Use (POU). Our patented air/gas sampling equipment was designed originally for the U.S. Navy Diver’s compressed air quality sampling in 1975. The TRI system, used today, employs a method that lowers the pressure of both high pressure and low
ThermaSafe™ ThermaSafe™ is a fire resistant, low smoke, non toxic resin system. Significant weigh savings on Navy Ships and submarines can be achieved by switching to composites, but stringent shipboard fire standards must be met. TRI’s ThermaSafe™ composite material was developed under the NAVSEA PEO-SUBS SBIR program, and meets the demanding MIL-STD-2031 fire smoke and toxicity
Rubber Cement There is a need for environmentally friendly adhesives that could meet performance requirements for the U.S. military. Cements used to bond rubber to metal and rubber to rubber contain large amounts of hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), toluene, and methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK). These adhesives are essential to
LAHMP™ System On-board structural health monitoring of aircraft is necessary for long term safety and to maximize useful life of components while minimizing maintenance and downtime. Applications where weight and size are critical require small, powerful embedded systems that draw low power. LAHMP™ fulfills these needs and can perform a variety of functions including acquiring
Torpedo Flex-Hose Torpedo Flex Hose minimizes lead exposure from flex hoses stored aboard submarines. The Navy has established strict controls to limit both occupational and environmental exposures to lead. A tin-plated lead tape is used within the Flex-Hose as a ballast to prevent entanglement with the guidance wire when deployed. The tin-plated lead tape can breakdown,
EcoMASS® EcoMASS® Compounds have the same density as lead and can be molded into virtually any shape using standard high-volume projection techniques. This Non-Toxic theromoplastic material lead substitute was developed for the US Army and used in firing ranges, where millions of dollars are currently being spent each year in the remediation of lead contamination.
CBW Safe Water Pouch Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc. (TRI Austin) has developed a chemical-biological warfare (CBW) resistant water pouch to provide safe drinking water in contaminated environments. The water pouch is designed to fit in a variety of holding devices and interfaces with currently available mask drinkstraw systems. A two-layer design incorporates a CBW resistant
