Marine Corrosion
hi guys!

I'm new member and i have many questions about marine corrosion! I hope you have big experience in this case and you will help me!

I'm interested in different coatings for big ships, for example oil tanks ships or cargo ships.

First of all i'm interested coating of hull. I know about ZnAl alloys and CuNi alloys (below water line) thermal spraying, maybe there is anything else?

So big thank's u for help!!!

Yours faithfully, Mr.N

Hi Mr.N
I did many corrosion application on big tanks, and I can say you that the only coatings that work, is about 200 micrometer with arc sprayed aluminum or Al/5%Mg, with special primer sealant and after this about 0,5/1 mm with special paint, after paint it will be necessary a spark Test, in order to detect any pin holes in the paint.
Best regards
