The principal objective of this research was to develop a water resistant protective coating in order to render water soluble glass suitable for utilization as a container structure. Two alternative approaches can be used to apply such coatings: (1) apply an inorganic coating (this is currently being done in another research group using vapor deposition methods), or (2) apply an organic or polymer coating. The research described here deals with the development of the latter approach. The final coated structure might be employed as a container for such items as soft drinks, beer, food, detergents, etc.
