In our state of the art facility, we carry out work in a controlled environment. Anything that can be transported, we can surface in our station, such as cranes, tanks, boats, containers and trailers. We lift and handle boats up to 35 tons. Total area for blasting and painting of the station is 2 000 m2.
Painting requires a clean surface with some roughness for the paint to stick. Painting of rust color can be applied in several ways.
Brush painting is often used for so-called back-edges. Welds, railings, pipes and everywhere where it is difficult to get to it width the syringe.
Roller painting is also used to reach difficult places. In principle, where it is quicker than with a brush.
Spray painting is used on large areas, partly because it is quick, partly to build up a thick layer of color.
Airless spray is the method we use most. It means that the paint decomposes after the high pressure had passed through a nozzle and continues to the object to be applied. The pressure in the front of the syringe can be up to 400 bar. The advantages of this is that
We water blasting and painting all types of roofs and facades of up to 2800 bar.
We use, among others Noxyde rust and korisions protection that is well proven and has been around in Sweden for over 20 years. It is an environmentally friendly corrosion protection system which has unique advantages. It is water based and has no environmental impact in either the short or long term. It is extremely elastic and stretchable (up to 200%) making that it follows the movements of the sheet. The paint is built up in a thick sieve that allows it to retain its antirust ability for a very long time. It is soft in nature, which means that it can withstand impact and minimizes scratches. Noxyde contains an active anti-corrosive zinc compound that provides exceptional long-lasting protection against rust.
We perform annually blasting and painting of thousands of square feet of potable watertanks and RSW-tanks (“Refrigerated Salt Water”). RSW-tanks is the tanks on fishing boats where the fish is contained and cooled to the desired temperature.
The coating that is applied in the RSW tanks shall not contaminate or affect water quality, taste or smell. The products we use are approved for potable water tanks and grain cargo.
The system used in tanks is usually a two-component epoxy paint with pure 100% solids (no solvents, leaving the paint after coating).
As we all know it is important with anit-slip coating aboard a ship. We use a system that is well suited to our climate. The anti-slip coat is available in several colors and grain sizes. It is sprayed directly on the deck with a special syringe, and is extremely durable.
Surface blasted first to Sa 2.5 (read more about Blasting) and then applied with 300 my epoxy wet. Then we spray coat to 1250 my wet.
Various polyurethane coatings are specially tested for the defense and fleet, with excellent results.
Our usual granular sizes are from
We apply waterbased sprayable soundproofing material for boats, cars, machinery, etc. The damping compound is easy to apply and effectively reduces mechanical noise on steel, aluminum and fiberglass.
- Easily applies with spraying equipment, brush or roller.
- Reduce working hours by up to 80%
- Recommended film thickness of about 3 mm (depending on surface).
- High damping factor in relation to the weight compared to traditional soundproofing material.
- Very good adhesion.
- Contains corrosion protection.
- Prevents condensation. Resistent mot vatten. Resistant to water.
- Very high wear and abrasion protection.
Noxudol 3100/3101 is approved according to the following standards:
- Fire resistance Volvo STD 5031,1
- Flame Spread IMO Resolution A.653(16)
- Smoke ISO 5659-2 (1994)
- Test of Fire reaction (F1) (French Standard)
- Heat Radiation (M1) (French Standard)
- Bureau Veritas Certificate of Type Approval Lloyds Certificate Primary Deck Covering Material
When you discover that the bottom of your boats is covered with small blisters, it is unfortunately already too late. Your boat has got “böldpest”. We blast the bottom of your boat down to the gelcoat. The sand removes all the blisters to the bottom. After blasting, we measure the moisture and dry out the boat. We reinforce pores and imperfections with epoxy filler and then we start adding the surface in several steps.
We blast and paint indoors in heated buildings.
We use Procoat and Polyurea that is rubber-based spray coatings designed to effectively and continually protect metal, wood and concrete from corrosion, wear and noise. It is solvent free and based on renewable materials. The rubber coating has high elasticity and is applicable in thick layers, e.g. to protect against water and rust. Beside it’s corrosion- and sound insulating abilities it is also proved to be a very good electrically insulating material.
Examples of uses for rubber coating:
- Water protection of bridges and metal constructions
- Anti-slip coating for concrete floors, betonggolv, boat decks, loading docks, etc
- Wear and corrosion protection of surfaces in trucks
- Sealing of floors, walls and ceilings
Watch when vi apply a rubber coating:
Fire protection coating
We perform protection coating for steel constructions in threat of jet fires to reduce the risk of explosions.
In marine and industrial environments, where hydrocarbon pool and jet fires are a risk, the intumescent properties of PITT-CHAR XP prevent steel structures from heating up rapidly in a fire. This delays the loss of load-bearing capacity and integrity, and buys time for personnel to evacuate to a safe area.
In addition to its unrivaled fire protection, the unique flexibility of PITT-CHAR XP provides enhanced resistance to cracking on flexing and vibrating structures, and exhibits excellent performance particularly under cryogenic and explosion overpressure conditions.
Pitt-Char XP has comprehensive type approval certification for hydrocarbon pool and jet fires from major recognized authorities:
- American Bureau of Shipping (ABS)
- Bureau Veritas (BV)
- Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
- Lloyd’s Register of Shipping (LR)
- Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
OXIFREE is an environmentally friendly and food-approved metal-based corrosion protection based on cellulose and contains vegetable oil that prevents moisture, water and contaminants from penetrating. OXIFREE is ideal for protecting flange connections, valves, bearing housings, pumps, bolt connections, cistern brackets etc. in exposed environments.
Process industry, steel and mining industry, offshore, yards and harbors are today examples of industries where OXIFREE is used worldwide.
