Abstract:

Nonskid coatings onboard naval ships are essential. The coatings need to be resistant to oil, chemicals, fire and moisture, while still being durable and aesthetically pleasing. Most nonskid deck coverings to date are based on multilayered systems of epoxy resins, polyurethanes or acrylics. These often require at least two components and thorough mixing before application. The drying times of the multiple layers drive up costs, not just in materials but also the time involved. A new binding polymer system is proposed here that should allow for a single layer, single component application onto steel decking that should successfully meet all the present requirements of naval deck coverings. It should be thinner, lighter, cost less, cure faster yet be more durable in the rigors of a naval environment.
