Standard coating advisory

Reduce total maintenance costs

Are you experiencing two of the biggest challenges when coating a vessel?

  • Ensuring the paint is suited to the surface
  • Correcting potential issues before undocking

Having a Hempel coating advisor on site at the beginning and end of the project helps ensure the job is done right and quality is controlled before the vessel is launched.
