In 2012, TIS were called upon to carry out a painting refurbishment of the Cutty Sark before its re-opening to the public following the fire damage in 2007.
Cutty Sark is listed by National Historic Ships as part of the National Historic Fleet (the nautical equivalent of a Grade 1 Listed Building). She is one of only three vessels remaining in the world with this classification.
All areas of corrosion were removed by mechanical preparation to ST3 standard and areas of sound existing paint were hand abraded to ST2. Once preparation was complete a 3 coat system of epoxy was applied including a polyurethane finish.
The Cutty Sark remains one of London’s great tourist attractions.
