Surface Preparation: Marine and Offshore

Our experience in working in environmentally challenged locations has enabled YYK to quickly diagnose, develop and execute work performance in a well-timed and cost effective approach. From a wide spectrum of diversification including; bridges, tanks, towers, platforms, dredges and oil derricks YYK accomplishes surface preparation and corrosive control applications within agreed upon time evolutions while retaining sole source employee involvement.

Abrasive Blasting

For 30 years, YYK Enterprises, Inc. has performed surface preparation for both new coating solutions and degraded substrate repair. Using a variety of media such as aluminum oxide, steel shot, steel grit, glass lead, plastic media and nut shells, we achieve the required blast standard without damaging the substrate. Our equipment allows us to mobilize to virtually any location worldwide. Sandblasting is most often used as a method of preparing a surface for the application of paint coatings. When applying modern coatings, the applicator doesn’t want to trap dust, dirt, or bubbles in a previous layer of paint, or other imperfections under the new layer. By launching small bits of abrasive at the surface at a high speed, all imperfections are knocked loose and can be easily cleaned off, creating an incredible surface profile upon which to apply Industrial and mil spec paint coatings.
