This SERDP- and ESTCP-sponsored workshop focused on ESOH and life-cycle cost issues relevant to application of surface engineering technologies for the production and sustainment of aerospace and defense systems, including aircraft, vehicles, ships, and electronics. More than 240 engineers representing DoD, prime contractors, and suppliers participated. Workshop sessions assessed alternatives to hexavalent chromium (Cr6+, chromate), beryllium (Be), cadmium (Cd), and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Other sessions highlighted alternative technologies used to protect light metals and electronics, new accelerated corrosion test methods, and coating removal technologies.
