Abstract:

A number of organic coating systems, top coated zinc inorganic systems, and splash zone compounds were exposed on steel specimens in shallow and deep ocean environments. Performance was generally better at shallow depths. Notable exceptions were soft asphaltic and coal tar coating systems that are susceptible to barnacle damage in surface waters. Organic coating systems of 13- mil or greater dry film thickness performed markedly better than those of less thickness. Post-cured zinc inorganic systems tended to perform better than those self-cured.
