The shipyard used UHP water jetting to prepare the surface. Solvent-free, wet & rust tolerant Epo-chem™ RS 500P was then used in inclement weather conditions. The work was completed when all other paint operations had to stop. The areas of severe damage and metal loss were quickly filled with Ceram-chem™ RH 500 (ceramic filler) by trowel in one coat. Ceram-chem™ RP 500 (blue topcoat) was applied as a sealer/topcoat.
