Marine Anti Fouling

Ships and boats must maintain a suitable coating to prevent rust and corrosion. The coating system on their hulls is subject to the accumulation of microorganisms, algae and other marine life (biofouling), which can reduce the vessel's performance and increase its fuel requirements. Therefore, a regular programme of anti-fouling is required for both commercial and leisure vessels.

The traditional method of anti-fouling - using the sandblast technique - is increasingly being replaced by hydroblasting as the preferred solution, due to the contamination and health issues resulting from breathing sandblasted materials. As well as the removal of biofouling, the hydroblast method can be used to remove anti-fouling marine coatings (paints) and rust from steel, aluminium or fibreglass hulls. The water pressure can be adjusted to suit precisely the number of coating layers that require removal. In addition to the hull, hydroblasting is suitable for use on deck areas and tanks.
