The November issue of the Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings is now online, available through options including an interactive digital edition, a full complement of web content and downloadable PDF.

The first feature arrives as the first installation of a two-part series involving the future of ship painting. In this article, Andy Hopkinson, Ralitsa Mihaylova and Raouf Kattan, Safinah Group Ltd., highlight areas where developments will be required to meet the challenges of building, repairing and operating ships in the future, and identify technologies that may offer solutions to some of these problems.

Next, Raquel Morales, Antoni Prieto, Joaquin Ferreiro and David Morton, Hempel A/S, recognize that zinc-rich primers are often not used during maintenance in offshore infrastructure projects because of difficulties in achieving desired surface preparation and controlling the applied dry-film thickness to prevent cracking. In their article, the team discusses the performance of new, activated zinc-rich epoxy primers compared to conventional zinc-rich epoxy primers on steel prepared to different surface profiles using standard techniques of today.

Finally, Nick Kline, Polygon US, outlines how various combinations of desiccant dehumidification, heating and cooling equipment and other components have been utilized in shipyards during abrasive-blasting operations. In “Dehumidification in Shipyard Abrasive Blasting: Techniques, Dos and a Few Don’ts,” Kline discusses when these operations were carried out properly and also provides some examples of when things did not work out so well.
