Job Description:

Location:Newport News, Virginia, United StatesDate: May 28, 2021Job DescriptionThe Marine Painter will be trained to SSP-3 and SSPC-SP-11 standards using power tools. A candidate must be able to learn the proper method for applying coatings while maintaining desired MIL thickness. A candidate will be required to work in a physically demanding environment including confined spaces and heights. A candidate must be able to use power tools, hand tools, or chemicals to accomplish cleaning of surfaces prior to applying coating systems. Nearly every component or structural element aboard ship requires specific coatings, this is why the painter is responsible for selecting and applying a wide variety of marine coating systems. Coatings protect the steel and other surfaces from rust and corrosion, protect the underwater portion from the attachment of marine life, and enhance the general appearance of the ship. The painter prepares the surface, masks unpainted areas, sandblast surfaces, selects the methods of coating application and provides suitable curing conditions. In addition to modern paint techniques, the painter may work with power coating, non-skid, and other special hull treatments. The painter must interpret paint schedules, calculate surface areas, estimate the amount of materials required, test the grade, viscosity and fineness of the paint, and perform final quality inspections.
