SIASA, specialized in anticorrosive coating for ships, part of the Soluciones Reunidas Group along with DEPISA, has concluded successfully the process of surface preparation and painting of twelve Landing Craft LHD for the Australian Army.
The speedboats have been through an anticorrosive protection process based on dry abrasive blasting to eliminate corrosion followed by application of high specification paint.
The works have been carried out between march 2013 andjuly 2015, in three slots of four speedboats, in the Navantia San Fernando facilities.
The works required the use of specialized machines for the collection and recovery of abrasives: dust and gas extractor, dehumidifier, suction pump, collection bunker, feed hoppers and sandblasting units. The paint used, approved by the Australian Army, has been provided by International Paint.
