The triggerable materials are integrated into coating formulations and applied onto textile and plastic substrates. After triggering, the debonding efficiency is evaluated.
The assessment of the especially designed triggers will be continued, especially on plastic substrates. Further, the assessment of microwaveable triggers is behind schedule due to corona, so these results are expected in the near future.
CTAG is now completing the assessment considering the synergistic effect that might occur when combining two of the above-mentioned situations, for example which are the loss of properties when a base polymer with remaining coating is treated with the deboning processes developed in DECOAT.
In addition, CTAG is going to evaluate the loss of properties of the coated components with the triggers/primers developed during the project when submitted to accelerated ageing in order to determine that the coating resistance itself is not affected.
