Advanced Corrosion Services

Maritime Equipment

Any equipment or vehicles operating in a maritime environment will be subjected to conditions that will accelerate corrosion. The majority of anti-corrosion system failures can be directly attributed to sub-standard surface preparation or mixing of coating materials prior to application. Corrosion can be a very costly point of damage to maritime equipment.
