Characterizing Surfaces after UHP Waterjetting in New Ship Construction

by Philippe Le Calvé, DCNS, France; Jean-Pierre Pautasso, Direction Générale de I’Armement, France; and Nathalie Le Bozec, French Corrosion Institute

The authors report on the first part of a study on the use of UHP waterjetting for secondary surface preparation in new vessel construction. They focus on the influence of cleaning parameters such as flow pressure or type of waterjetting tools on surface cleanliness, roughness, and holding primer. The results are compared with a traditional grit-blasted surface.
