Abstract : The primary goal of NSRP Project 3-95-3 was to identify and evaluate water-thinned preconstruction primers (PCP's) which could potentially be used as viable substitutes for conventional PCP's containing powdered zinc and high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC's). The objectives of this 6-Task 17-month project were to compile a comprehensive list of commercially available water-thinned preconstruction primers (PCP's) which contain little or no hazardous metal and to evaluate the more promising candidate PCP's by laboratory and shipyard testing. In this work selected PCP's were evaluated for weatherability, compatibility with follow-on coatings, cutting performance, and weldability per MIL-STD-248D.
