Report on testing program performed at Harbor Island Corrosion Laboratory during years 1961 through 1969. Paint exposures were made in the spinning drum equipment. 33 coating systems were tested by using developed boottop paint testing machine. In operation the drums are lowered into the wooden tank. Superior performance of the long-life vinyl, and epoxy systems compared to the somewhat lesser performance of phenolic systems in line with the expected performances of these paints and gives indication of the effectiveness of paint testing machine.
