Vanwin, a certified Small Business contractor,  has been involved in corrosion control coatings with the military since our beginning. We have NACE Certified Coating Inspectors, NBPI paint inspectors, a NAVSEA approved QA plan, and all necessary QA inspection equipment to satisfy the Military's demanding requirements. If we can get it to our shop, Vanwin's complete blasting services, and extensive coating experience will give you the coating system you require, done under close supervision, and under controlled conditions not available in the field.

For in-shop work, we recommend powder coating whenever possible, for its durability and corrosion protection. Below are just some of the items we have powder coated for ships:
