Preventative corrosion control is key in high-moisture maritime environments

Moisture is, by definition, unavoidable in maritime environments. When a surface is constantly bombarded with wetness and salt, asset failure can happen quickly — and tragically — if preventative maintenance isn’t dutifully employed.

For ships, barges, buoys, drilling platforms and other marine structures, thinking preventatively about corrosion control isn’t an option — it’s a must. There’s no doubt about it: your asset will corrode if you don’t take proactive measures like choosing the right coating or creating a comprehensive coating maintenance plan.

The high-intensity corrosion challenges faced by marine facilities require a holistic knowledge of which coatings are best for your needs. Do you need non-slip coatings for walking surfaces? Would luminescent coatings make your inland marine facility more visible to passing ships?

Some maritime coating characteristics are non-negotiable. Your coatings need to last — against waves, salinized water, chloride, intense UV exposure — and they need to abide by the stringent regulations and restrictions associated with the industry.
