Abstract:

Research is presented in connection with the development of damping treatments identified as F57 for surface ships. F57 is a graphite filled copolymer of vinyl acetate with maleic anhydride. It is flammable and thermoplastic. It is concluded that treatments similar to F57 should be prepared to see whether a non-flammable, better processing treatment having equal or better damping than F57 can be developed. Author
