Abstract : The report briefly evaluates the use of adhesives for estomers in marine environments. The following conclusions were found to be valid: The environment during application can be just as damaging to the performance of an adhesive joint during service as the service environment itself; practical adhesive systems for bonding elastomeric compounds under shipyard conditions for marine utilization must be specifically designed for tolerance to the application environment as well as resistance to the service environment; Reliable and serviceable marine adhesive systems for bonding all elastomeric compounds can be developed for complete utilization of acoustic, antifouling, and erosion resistant elastomeric compounds.
