Abstract : The objective of this report is to investigate coatings for navy in seawater ballast tanks that are: Surface tolerant; Can be applied in warm weather (50 deg F or greater); Safe to use; and meet current and predicted future environmental regulations. These touchup coatings are needed since complete gritblasting and repainting of ballast tanks will occur with less frequency in the future due to the expense and environmental problems.
