Abstract
Laboratory and long-term exposure tests on specification Primer 1-GP-48 Type A and Primer 1-GP-48 Type A overcoated with 1-GP-61 topcoat show that these materials are significantly better than a group of alternate compositions. However, there is no correlation between laboratory and long-term tests. The exposure tests bear out user experience in so far as class behavior goes but gives no prediction of protective life on shipboard. Behavior on the racks does give an indication of the critical factors in film breakdown and this is borne out by shipboard use.
