Bath Iron Works was looking for a coating material to protect the lagging wrapped around the uptakes inside the super structure of this Navy Destroyer. The coating material must be able to move with the substrate without cracking, allow moisture build up to escape from the substrate and finally, waterproof the uptakes to protect the substrate from the salt air and elements.
• GREEN and Super Compliant Zero VOC Coatings
• Class A Fire Rated
• Minimum Surface Preparation
• Seal and Waterproof the Surface without Trapping Moisture
• Non Toxic
• High Impact and Abuse-Resistant
• Fast Drying
• Flexibility to Withstand Extreme Vibration
• Long-Term Solution
Results: A Class A Fire Rated GLOBAL Encasement System was installed providing the U.S. Navy with a secure, highly impact-resistant, durable, long lasting solution. The system chosen includes our PrepLESS Primer™ with 4,000% elongation, GEI Seam Tape, and our waterproof AsbestoSafe® which allows vapor transmission.
The contractor was under pressure to complete this project and was able to apply PrepLESS Primer™ and AsbestoSafe® on the same day due to the quick dry time of the coatings.
