Osage U.S. Coast Guard

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.

Damaged Tanker Refurbishment

Recently, our Repairs & Maintenance Division refurbished this damaged tanker. The team inspected the unit to find all damaged areas. The main work consisted of rolling and fabricating new tank panels which were then fully welded. After the repairs were complete, which included a new catwalk and pipe work, the tank was pressurized to ensure there were no leaks in the vessel. Our Shop Coatings Team then sandblasted the trailer, gave it a new paint job, and also new decals.

Roof Repair & Coating

In June, a customer was in need of a complete roof repair job. Our Field Coatings team cut out the blisters and repaired all leaking areas to ensure no water would get through. Afterwards, we applied a spray foam and elastomeric acrylic coating for the finishing touch. Our spray foam and elastomeric roof coating systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce building energy consumption, provide insulation, and improve structural integrity while costing less than a conventional roof replacement.
