The HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier, the pride of the Royal Navy, received its finishing touches of coating on many of the internal areas from manufacturer Sherwin-Williams.
The Queen officially named the 920-ft long HMS Queen Elizabeth – the largest warship ever built for the Royal Navy – by breaking a bottle of whisky on her bow at Rosyth Dockyard in Scotland.
Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) provided the protection for a range of areas including the machinery spaces and internal wet spaces. The coating was a two-coat system using a primer of Metagard L674 epoxy glass flake or Epigrip C425V2 epoxy zinc phosphate. For wet areas, a water-based epoxy Biogard M630V2 finish coat was used and for internal dry compartments, a finish coat of water-based Envirogard M770 was applied.
