Field tests were conducted at Port Hueneme, California, and Panama City, Florida, on an adhesive developed at CEL that is capable of being applied underwater. The tests indicate that sandblasting rusty steel results in bonding as strong or stronger than wire-brushed surfaces and in stronger bonding than on waterblasted surfaces. Bonding strengths of field-applied specimens were about one-sixth to one-third those of laboratory-applied specimens.
