Developing new anti-microbial solutions for aircraft fuel tanks
MICTEST develops new protocols for coatings, materials and components of aircraft fuel tanks to control microbial development.
What is being done?
DEFINE MICROBIAL PRESENCE IN FUEL TANKS
QUALIFY COATINGS & MATERIALS
DEVELOP NEW PROTOCOLS
SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL GUIDELINES
Objectives of MICTEST:
- Determine antimicrobial properties by assessing bio-contamination levels
- Qualify the degradation of materials in aircraft fuel systems
- Characterize the performance of functionalized coatings
- Evaluate the effect of biocontamination on materials and coatings and vice versa
