Abatement by Encasement: Safeguarding People while Saving MoneyTM

USSCurtis Wilbur – Naval Base Yokosuka, Japan

Case History

Property:

USS Curtis Wilbur, DDG 54

Location:

Naval Base Yokosuka, Japan

Challenge:

This entire ship space is exposed to continuous hot, humid, corrosive environmental exposure during underway operating conditions, causing corrosion damage to all metal surfaces. Lagging on stacks deteriorates rapidly due to exposure to sea and rain water.

Solution:

Hand preparation of excessively deteriorated areas followed by pressure washing all surfaces with Chlor-Rid to remove soluble salts. Apply SE-110-CI Penetrating-Stabilizer and allow thorough drying. Next, over-coat with SE-120 Protective-Skin then topcoat with an optional SE-170 High-Gloss.
