Constructex is an Industrial Coating Applicator with a focus on the marine environment.
Corrosion is a big problem and is believed to cost approximately 3% of annual GDP. In the marine environment corrosion represents a significant problem with a combination of oxygen and water exposure to steel.
As a specialist maintenance provider to maritime assets Constructex has undertaken numerous marine painting projects.
We undertake whole projects from design and specification, devising the access solutions, containment mechanisms, permits and approvals.
We have the capability to blast, UHP jet wash and apply industrial marine coating systems which can have a life of up to 20 years.
Past projects have involved applying coating systems developed by Ineternational and Jotun. We have carried out UHP jet washing to achieve HB2.5 and sand blasting using an environmentally friendly garnet to achieve SA 2.5
The containment mechnisms we have developed capture the detritus which is cleaned from the existing surface prior to the application of coating systems. We have undertaken projects from the shore side and from afloat using our own vessels.
We have successfully applied for and gained environmental permits on preevious projects which have involved marine coating schemes.
