Abstract
This is the final report of Phase 1 of the program to develop plasma spray coatings for glass reinforced plastics (GRP). The objectives of the program were to investigate the feasibility of using these coatings to improve fire protection of GRP materials. The program consisted of applying plasma spray coatings on several substrates of glass reinforced plastics. These substrates were coated with alumina, magnesium zirconate and zirconia ceramic coatings. Emphasis was placed on the development of coatings technology for GRP panels and to utilize the data thus generated to develop a detailed program to optimize the coatings on selected compositions. The report describes the nature of the study and results from tests conducted on these coupons. A brief description of the future program is also given.
