Two recent thesis works (CNES-ONERA financial support in collaboration with the LCPO, Bordeaux University, and MAP coating) were dedicated to the knowledge of the degradation mechanisms and the stabilization of these PDMS resins to the spatial environment (UV and protons specifically). Moreover, the first innovative solutions for the stabilization under UV radiation and proton exposition were developed and validated.
The objectives of this new study are to continue the hopeful work performed during the latest thesis works, with especially the creation of hybrids class II materials and self-healing solutions. A significant work in polymers synthesis will be planned. Formulated materials will then be analyzed to estimate the stabilization gain obtained with these new solutions.
