This thesis reports work carried out to investigate the adhesive properties of chlorinated-rubber based lacquers on mild steel. Tensile tests were used to measure the failure stresses of such coatings, and it was established that a mixture of cohesive and weak boundary layer failure occurred. Consideration was given to the influence of lacquer storage, film thickness, drying time and binder molecular weight on the failure stress of the coating.
In Chapters 1 and 2 the theories of a...Expand abstract
