Abstract:

Development has been carried to the stage in which underwater adhesion to irregular metal surfaces is possible in laboratory tests. The bonds formed permit the support of a weight of 50 lb by an adhesive area of 16 sq. in. for an indefinite period if a cushion adhesive assembly carrying a check valve is used. Superior bonds are believed possible by improved design of the cushion adhesive system. Author
