Application - Repair to Display Cannon to repair rust and worn areas.

Industry - Government

Contractor –  Sandblast Experts and IMS Technical Consultant

Problem - The Seal Team Cannon was used for static display purposes.  The barrel of the cannon had been filled with concrete.  Water began to collect in the cannon barrel, between the concrete and the steel barrel, resulting in rusting from the inside to the outside of the cannon.  Customer wanted rust areas repaired and contours of original cannon restored. 

Solution - Concrete was removed from inside of cannon. Exterior of cannon was media blasted to provide an SSPC-10 SP10 profile.  Dust, dirt and debris were removed from the substrate.  Worn and holed areas were filled with Belzona 1111 Super Metal and 1111 was finished to restore original cannon contours.  Cannon was powder coated to customer specified color.
