Abstract

Materials fabricated in the nano-dimension (100-10 2nm) are purported to possess property advantages and thus provide avenues for performance and functional gains in structures made with these materials unthought with conventional materials. This paper examines some of the possible gains in performance and function that might occur by the inclusion of nano-dimensioned materials within organic coatings for military aircraft. Both, advantages and possible disadvantages when using these materials are examined. Within the multitude of physical and chemical attributes that could be impacted, this paper will focus on the topics of stability, mechanical properties, and optical properties, as these may be affected when using nano-dimensioned materials to increase the functionality of a paint.
