This memorandum reports on the development of a deicing coating-system service-test kit which contains all of the materials and instructions necessary for preparation, application and service testing aboard ship of deicing-coating systems. The kits are intended for distribution to vessels participating in tests of deicing-coating systems under service conditions. This memorandum also reports on a service trial of a coating system XZ-8-3057, performed with the use of such a kit, aboard the Navy minesweeper USS LIMPKIN MSC-195. The coating system reduced the amount of work necessary for ice removal up to 30. Author
