Blast and Repaint - MV Tramp Workboat

Revamp the Tramp

In April 2015 we abrasive blasted and repainted Neumann Plant division’s work boat MV Tramp. 

The “Tramp” was blasted with Crushed Glass in our 15 metre by 7 metre by 7 metre Abrasive Blasting Booth then repainted in our 20 x 20 metre Spray booth. 

Paint used was Wattyl PR250 primer, Wattyl Epinemal DTM985 High build epoxy and a Wattyl Poly U 400 Topcoat. Jotun Anti foul was also used.
