Marine Production Facilities
Our experts have been providing blast and paint solutions to international marine customers for five decades.
Airblast AFC is able to produce world-class blast and paint facilities for leading manufacturers in ship and submarine building, gas and oil component manufacturing, and offshore wind energy.
Careful maintenance is crucial at sea, where tough conditions have a highly detrimental effect on marine structures and equipment. Valuable assets at sea are vulnerable to material degradation, flash rust, paint blistering, and delamination.
As the sophistication of marine coatings increases, so too does the demand placed on surface preparation. All our marine blast and paint facilities incorporate climate and humidity controls. These enable accurate environment management for faster production times and higher quality results.
