46 NOVEMBER 2017 COATINGSPROMAG.COM ey've coated everything from brand new steel plates to severely rusted support beams below decks and have fought corrosion wherever needed throughout the ship, including hull and superstructure. Greer believes that by removing oxygen from the equation, MA XON's CRS/C2M coating system will provide more than a decade of protection. He also saluted Josh Stofle and the entire F. Roberts crew. "Josh 's crew is working under some of the worst circum- stances I've seen," Greer said. "Overall, the logistics are tough, and it's a dark, dank place in which to work. e quality and progress of the application is going much better than I antici- pated. You know, corrosion starts within four hours — that's why they have flash rust inhibitors — yet after several months, we've seen nothing." Stofle is glad to have MA XON on board, especially given the unacceptably high risks associated with abrasive blasting and/ or hauling the ship to drydock. "is is a real world location," Stofle said. "And with the fiscal situation, constraints of the jobsite, and condition of ship taken into account, we feel we're on the right tack."
