The US Navy has implemented the use of Ultra High Solids (UHS) epoxies as tank coatings over the past 15 years. This paper reviews the evolution to UHS coatings, their performance benefits, and the environmental impact of using these materials. The next generation of UHS coatings incorporating single coat, rapid cure properties and optically active fluorescent pigments will also be explored.
