Abstract The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center and Wright Laboratory Materials Directorate sponsored an effort to reformulate and qualify Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute (IITRI) spacecraft thermal control coatings. S-13G/LO-1, Z-93, and YB-71 coatings were reformulated because the potassium silicate binder, Sylvania PS7, used in the coatings is no longer manufactured. Coatings utilizing the binder{close_quote}s replacement candidate, PQ Corporation{close_quote}s Kasil 2130, were tested at the Materials Directorate{close_quote}s Space Combined Effects Primary Test and Research Equipment (SCEPTRE) Facility operated by the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI). The simulated space environment consisted of combined UV and electron exposure with {ital in} {ital situ} specimen reflectance measurements. A brief description of the effort at IITRI, results and discussion from testing the reformulated Z-93 and S-13G/LO-1 coatings in SCEPTRE are presented. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
