Last week K Blasting had a trip to Polruin in Cornwall, the team at were given the task to blast clean and hot zinc spray a new fishing vessel, Loch Inchard 3,

This large 19 meter trawler has recently been built at C.Toms boat yard and is finally ready to receive her coatings  for a long hard life at sea.

By Blast cleaning the steel first, this gives a perfect surface profile for the molten zinc spray to adhere to. This process is known as hot zinc spraying. This type of coating has the same longevity as hot dip galvanizing but allows you to protect items that are too large to dip into a tank of molten zinc. After K Blasting has finished the protective coatings, the painters will apply her colour scheme and waterline markings.

Stood along side this magnificent vessel on the quay side wall was certainly overwhelming. K Blasting managed to blast clean and hot zinc spray the entire outside of the boat from the water line up and the rear working area in just under a week. We were all proud of our progress and were complimented by the boat yard on how quickly and efficiently we completed the job.

On Friday, K Blasting had a successful day working with the team at Brixham Battery. The Vintage gun has now been moved to the prime position at the front of the Battery. It was in desperate need of some TLC to bring it back to its former glory. By removing the paint and the rust for the Brixham Battery Team, they now have the best chance for a long lasting paint application.
