A collaborative test to determine the efficacy of polyurethane coatings on wood samples exposed in the marine environment

IRG/WP 4113

R A Eaton

Aims are: a) to determine the effectiveness of elastomeric polyurethane as a protective coating against marine wood boring animals in a range of tropical and tempreate sites; b) to compare the adhesion of polyurthane coatings on different wood species exposed in seawater; c) to record the severity of attack in failed samples and to identify the causal marine organisms.
