Our Field Coatings Team refurbished the Osage, a U.S. Coast Guard barge located in Owensboro, KY. The existing coating system was aged and beginning to rust and fade. We followed the USCG specifications to abrasive blast to remove existing coatings on the hull, freeboard, and underwater body. We also blasted and coated the sewage and freshwater tank interiors. Our team overcame the challenges of working on a drydock in the elements in the heart of winter, which isn’t ideal because of the weather conditions needed to blast and paint, but the crew was able to work through and have a successful outcome.
The Field Coatings Division provides a wide range of industrial / commercial coating solutions for asset protection and corrosion prevention for our customers including, but not limited to surface preparation, industrial painting, floor coatings, tank coatings / linings, plural component, and roof coatings.
