Manufacturing a product to withstand the environmental stresses of wind, rain, and sediment is challenging enough. But, when you add saltwater and wave action to the mix, the detrimental threat of corrosion increases significantly.
Anti-corrosive or anti-fouling coatings and protective paints serve to protect ships against those environmental threats.
But, the coating or paint is only as strong as its adhesive quality. If the adhesion fails, the coating or paint chips and the ship becomes vulnerable to corrosion. Failures in the field can be both costly and dangerous.
Ensuring quality adhesion is the key to guaranteeing successful protection. But, how can quality adhesion be achieved?
