This project focused on developing the data needed to request Navy approval to apply a MIL-PRF-23236 Type VII Ultra High Solids (UHS) epoxy over retained MIL-PRF-23236 Type VI epoxy in critical coated areas that typically receive Type VII epoxy in a single or two-coat system. The Type VI epoxy will offer a cost effective solution that is a better corrosion protection barrier than Pre-Construction Primer (PCP) and more durable than brittle Type VII epoxy throughout the construction of a ship.
