Abstract : The patent describes a rubber having a plasticizer that exceeds the solubility limit of the plasticizer in the rubber. The plasticizer is selected so that it will plasticize the paint coating the rubber and since it exceeds the solubility limit of the plasticizer in the rubber it will gradually migrate to the surface of the rubber, and act as a softening agent for the paint and maintain the paint in a soft or unhardened condition. One application is in submarines where hardened paint aggravates problems of noise and vibration transmission.
