Abstract
Canadian Fleet Atlantic Headquarters requested the assistance of Dockyard Laboratory (Atlantic) to investigate the failure of the non-skid deck coating on the foc’sle of the maritime coastal defence vessel HMCS Glace Bay (MM-701). The coating – a non-skid epoxy overlying an epoxy primer (each a two-part formulation) – was barely a year old when large patches began to lift off, exposing the steel deck beneath. The investigation failed to find any evidence of chemical deficiency or mechanical damage due to foot traffic and/or ice chipping, but it did show that the primer and topcoat had not been applied properly by a contractor.
