Blasting and Painting

What is Corrosion Prevention?

Corrosion prevention lengthens the lifespan of metal structures. When exposed to the elements in the environment, metal structures will suffer deterioration in structural strength.

Corrosion prevention typically begins with the blasting process, which cleans and eliminates contaminants on the surface of metal structures. This prepares it for coating and painting which will protect and prolong the life of these structures.

Corrosion is the deterioration of a material or its properties due to its reaction with the environment. Materials may include metals and alloys, non-metals, wood, ceramics, plastics, composites etc. Corrosion can occur through chemical or electrochemical reactions and is usually an interfacial process between a material and its environment.

Corrosion prevention is generally a method of repairing and protecting damage metal surface in ships or structure. This is primarily done using various blasting method to remove damaged paint from the structure and applying a new coat of paint.

Complete Range of Services

We provide comprehensive corrosion prevention services through a wide range of blasting and coating methods on-site at customers shipyards.

To complement our core services and deliver a one-stop solution to customers, we are also engaged in the design and supply of blasting and painting systems.

We mainly provide corrosion prevention services to mainly shipyards in Republic Bulgaria where this is part of their ship building, ship conversion and ship repair activities.

We also take requests from companies in the shipping, fishing and technical fleet.

Sivil Industry

SNIS consult, Ltd. provides shop and field abrasive blasting of all range of civil steel structures.

Marine Industry

We mainly provide corrosion prevention services to shipyards which require our blasting and painting services as part of their shipbuilding, ship conversion and ship repair activities.

Generally, we provide our corrosion prevention services for the external hull of ships and onboard the vessel. External hull corrosion prevention involve the blasting and painting of the vessels external hull, whilst onboard vessel corrosion prevention services involves the blasting and painting of the vessels structures such as tank internals, ship decks, accommodation and other storage tanks.

Usually, the resident ship external hull blasting contractor of a shipyard is required to perform external hull corrosion prevention services within the shipyards premises.

To qualify as a ship external hull blasting resident contractor, we have to meet and maintain stringent requirements of the respective shipyards in terms of track record, job quality and prompt delivery, amongst others.

Marine Growth Removal

Initial part of the cleaning process begins with the mechanical removal and manual scrapping of marine growth that is attached to the vessel.

Desalination and Washing

Desalination, Degreasing and Washing, using approximate preparations

Surface Cleaning

Wash the vessel external hull via high pressure water jet up to500 bar to remove common contaminants such as oil, grease and salts.

Surface Preparation

Employment of a suitable technique, using either abrasive blasting, mechanical power tooling for the removal of rust and paint prior to new application.

Our service covered Swedish standards SW; SA1; SA2; SA2,5 .

Paint Application

Application of effective coating to protect the metal surface from corrosion as well as for aesthetic purposes.

Our service covered SPPC standards.
