Treatment of Osmosis Problems
Blast cleaning as a method for treating osmosis problems in fibreglass hulls is effective and quick. By using controlled pressure and the correct grade of media, as much or as little of the gel coating will be removed, as required. The key that is created leaves the surface ready and prepared for re-coating. Either for osmosis treatment or just anti foul removal, blasting is always successful as it can be localised to different areas on the hull. The hull thickness invariably differs from one side to the other and even on the same side, the thickness of the gel coat can be extremely varied.
