Hey guys jeff here, if you also want to send a greetings to other sailors around the world,
make sure you add and send me on instagram.
Today we are going to check on the progress of crew's Chipping Rust and painting.
It is by far one of the most frequent done task on all ships, regardless of size .type.
military.
or merchant.
The principal reason for chipping and painting are for protection and decoration purposes.
Modern ships are made of steel and a well maintained one can last up to 20 or 30 years.
So To Start off, Bosun assign the work.
Making sure everyone wear Protective equipment.
Namely Helmet, Boots, masks, eye and ear protection.
The crews first look for any blistering or peeling.
The equipment we use are all pneumatic, which means air pressure powered because electrical
powered can be dangerous on deck.
From there we bring in the big toys.
This is a Pneumatic Chipping hammer.
The head thrust in and out.
penetrating rust.
Hammer is great for big pieces and flat surfaces.
For uneven surfaces, we have the Pneumatic Chipping Gun.
The individual needles pack less of a punch but are able to move about and covers more
surface area.
Or…You could go old school and use a chipping hammer.
Its all about the muscles.
Finally once the rust is off, we clean off with device call sunder to reveal bare metal.
The second half process is painting, well we have to start off from the paint locker.
Our ship's paint locker has thousands of liters of paint.
This pain locker is a smaller version intended for safe storage and quicker access to frequently
used paints.
The room is well ventilated so the paint fume won't build up which is potentially
dangerous.
We just have to make sure the correct proportions and most importantly, correct pairing.
For example, Not enough hardener can take forever to dry, and an incorrect type of hardener
will make it into lumps ruining the paint.
THE MSDS provide such information, MSDS stands for material safety data sheet.
It contains everything from what to mix with, to the flammability of the paint, to first
aid if u somehow took a sip.
Before we apply paint we have to make sure the surface is clean, sometimes we will even
wipe with a rag.
A Roller is used for flat surfaces and different size brush for others.
2-3 layers of primer is applied followed by a finishing top coat.
This process can take several days because of the time require to dry.
Brush work is very important and it comes down to attention to detail and experience.
You can expect someone like Bosun to be very efficient while a beginner to take extra time.
Chipping is always done in the morning and primer is done in the afternoon so that when
the crew is off work, the bare metal wont be exposed to the elements during the night.
