Description

The Navy Metalworking Center is developing laser ablation processes to remove paint, corrosion products and fiberglass from U.S. Navy steels. Laser ablation can remove these coatings in a small fraction of the time required for needle gunning or chemical stripping. This work is being performed in support of submarine and aircraft carrier total ownership cost reduction. http://www.nmc.ctc.com/
