One of the composite applications is its utilize in the water and seawater environments like boats, ships and float device of amphibious aircraft. This environment can affect the mechanical properties of composites since water can diffuse into the composites. Many researches have discussed about the effect of water and seawater on mechanical properties of composites like tensile, compressive, shear, and impact properties. This review is conducted on the field of durability of composites in water and seawater environment. Most studies are carried out by immersing composites in water and seawater for a certain period of time. Almost all studies exhibit the degradation of the mechanical properties of composites with ageing time of the immersion process in water or seawater.
