This webinar will review the failure analysis of a coating delamination that was observed on an aircraft carrier immediately after being secured to a pier after drydock painting and maintenance. The investigation consisted of a field investigation followed by laboratory testing to identify the cause of failure. Laboratory techniques used in the investigation included examination by optical microscopy, mix-ratio analysis by infrared spectroscopy and an application study to evaluate the recoat window and dry-time characteristics.
