Phase III is a continuation of the Low Friction Hull Coatings for Icebreakers program in which nonsolvented coatings gave the best protection for icebreaker hulls. This effort documents the reduction in resistance obtained, a laboratory study to determine the optimum application parameters, fouling characteristics and the cost benefit obtained from coating an icebreaker hull with the nonsolvented coatings. In addition, a model test program was run to determine the effect of a partial hull coating.
