Paper Abstract

The development of novel, highly durable coatings useful in protecting infrared materials against abrasion and high speed raindrop impact damage is reviewed. Key materials properties including fracture toughness, elastic modulus, hardness as well as internal stress in the film and substrate are discussed. Significant levels of protection have been demonstrated by several investigators.
