Abstract : This patent application concerns a two component epoxy paint for application to an underwater surface. The paint displaces the water on the underwater surface and bonds tightly and permanently to it, sealing concrete surfaces and protecting steel surfaces from corrosion. One component consists of a viscous liquid epoxy, a corrosion inhibitive pigment, and surface active agents while the other component is an amine adduct curing agent.
