Several underwater-applied epoxy coatings were developed for protecting steel structures in seawater. The more promising formulations were laboratory and field tested at different times using a brush, a roller, and a curved plastic applicator developed by the Navy Coastal Systems Laboratory. The coating that was the easiest to apply underwater is now marketed by a commercial supplier. Sandblasting was found to be the best method of preparing steel surfaces for painting underwater, and waterblasting was the next best of the five methods tested. Author
