Abstract : The report covers the observations made subsequent to a tour of temporary duty in England, France, Switzerland, Holland, and Germany, in order to obtain as much information as possible in regard to paint, varnish, and lacquer factories and research laboratories in these countries. Emphasis was placed on obtaining information which might be novel and which might lead to improved and less expensive protective and decorative organic coatings. The findings set forth in this report are to be employed in protective coating problems occurring during tests and investigations being conducted at the Engineer Research and Development Laboratories, Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
