NEW DIMENSION IN UNDERWATER MAINTENANCE

Flakeglas-polyester coatings, under development and evaluation for ten years, are now available in formulations which are applicable at high spraying rates to a one coat film thickness of 30-60 mils (0.76-1.5 mm). Combining unusual abrasion resistance with long life corrosion prevention, this coating permits maximum drydocking intervals. Also, bottom surface smoothness is retained and hence substantial fuel economies are anticipated. The high pot life of these coatings enables application at high flow rates with conventional or airless equipment.
