Abstract : The mechanism by which neoprene coatings fail is of interest because air traffic will be carried on for many years to come in the altitude range in which rain is still encountered and is in the velocity range for which neoprene coatings are a solution to the rain erosion problem. This report is an account of studies that have been made to determine the mechanism by means of which neoprene coatings eventually fail under high speed rain impingement. Results of tests involving antiozonant applications to the neoprene coatings are encouraging enough to warrant further experiments with such applications.
