Abstract : Samples of used rust-retarding, flotation-type, ballast-tank preservatives were taken from 30 floating drydocks to analyze their corrosionresisting properties. After a few months' service inside the ballast tank of a floating drydock, these oils were found to fail the MIL-SPEC requirements for rust retardation. It was found that because of improper use of these oils, only about 20 percent of the drydocks were receiving as much as 80 percent reduction in corrosion.
