SEAFIX fabricated and installed the Masters helm chair on the USNS Safeguard. Photo at left shows the bare structure as it is fabricated in our Lower Base machine shop.

All surfaces are properly prepared before painting begins. Paint is applied pneumatically, electrically, by hand, or by rolling. Final paint thickness are measured with the latest technology to insure best results and long lasting wear.

Handling of fluids like sea water, acid, alkalis and other impurities promote corrosion, leading to a thinning of wall thickness and potentially premature substrate failure resulting in costly downtime. SEAFIX can repair pipes and valves of various materials, extending the useful life of your existing system.
SEAFIX offers certified ABS welders to repair any type of metal.
SEAFIX repaired this existing ladder by adding half doublers to all ladder standoffs. The ladder now meets industry standards.
All sea-going vessels are prone to corrosion of their metal components. The constant sea water and the salty air continually attack metal surfaces. SEAFIX can refurbish these materials in our machine shop or directly aboard your vessel.
Corrosion control methods include sandblasting, mechanical scaling, hand tool cleaning, and solvent cleaning.
