We received this note from one of the largest Tug and Barge companies on the BC coast who have been using the Ship-2-Shore rust inhibitors since 1998. I spoke to Paul and he says they are using the PLID in aerosol on tugboat winch controls (bronze and brass) with excellent success. No more seized valves.

Regarding preparation of steelwork before application of Ship to Shore.
We basically needle gun all heavy scale/rust, coat the affected areas with a Rust Converter, allow for curing of Converter as per manufacturers recommendations, overcoat the Converter with a cheap (Grey) primer and then apply your product (Ship To Shore).
We have performed this application in the shaft tunnels, bilges (Engine Room & Aft Holds) and chain lockers on 3 vessels up to this date, "success rate is excellent".
