Our heated dive tank in the UK is used to train our own and our Client’s Divers to apply coatings & adhesives underwater. It is temperature controlled to simulate the conditions where the coating repairs will take place.

Coating procedures are individual to most contracts. The coating repair process for each job is thoroughly evaluated and its procedure verified for coating adhesion and uniform coating thickness.

Following diver training, each diver is awarded a certificate following evaluation and testing of his exam test piece which is tested for coating thickness, holidays and substrate to coating bond strength. This is necessary to ensure that the work is successful and the diver is competent to carry out the work.

The coating process can be used on any submerged surface that requires corrosion protection.
