UNDERWATER-APPLIED PAINTS, ADHESIVES AND FAIRING COMPOUNDS: A STATE-OF-THE-ART SURVEY

An extensive literature search and a worldwide survey of the industry were conducted to identify commercially available paints, adhesives and fairing compounds designed for underwater applications. As a result of this work, it was found that there is considerable information available regarding numerous products developed for application to submerged ship surfaces. Product designations, sources and company contacts are listed in this report, and, where possible, technical data sheets, material safety data sheets and experimental test results are provided. Relevant articles and reports uncovered by the literature search are also listed, together with a brief abstract for each item.
