Epoxy Coating Service
The recent purchase of airless spray equipment now enables structures to be coated extremely quickly and accurately, heavier epoxies which used to take a long time to apply by roller can now be applied in a fraction of the time. Recent work using this equipment included the refurbishment of the lifting hoist for Portland marina and the refurbishment of the sewage digester tank lids at Berry Hill, Bournemouth for Wessex Water, both achieving outstanding results.
The following pictures are from the blasting and coating of the Portland Marina hoist
Ok-what we see here is a yacht being coated with pure solvent free epoxy, we then blade the surface to achieve a glass smooth finish-impressive yes?
This method has a few benefits over a normal roll on finish in that it ensures any faults in the gelcoat are filled with pure waterproof’ unadulterated epoxy (as opposed to filler) and the finish is such that you’d not want to cover it up, follow this 2 or 3 coat system next morning with an epoxy primer tie coat and you’re ready for antifouling or Coppercoating-your choice!
As you can tell this is our passion and if you require advice then why not contact Paul to discuss your requirements.
Symblast even use the above method for osmosis repair and to date we have not had a single boat fail
no filler = no filler to go wrong!
2015 saw the purchase of a GRACO airless sprayer, this machine now enables us to apply epoxies to any surface with incredible speed and accuracy, this has been used with great success on the Portland Marina boat hoist, a 60ft steel boat at Brighton Marina and the insides of a dredger in Poole! we want to use it more so please enquire!!
