Formulation of electrically conductive, thermal-control coatingsFormulation of electrically conductive, thermal-control coatings was undertaken for use on the International Sun Earth Explorer (ISEE) spacecraft. Unsuccessful formulation efforts as well as the successful use of oxide pigments fired at 1175 C are described. Problems attributed to reactivity of specific coating vehicles exposed to high humidity are discussed. Measurement and testing methods, including resulting data are mentioned, but the emphasis, in this report, is placed on coating formulation and application techniques. Methods of varying, as desired, optical properties are also described as well as formulations of white, low-absorptance coatings.
