The construction of ships in pre‐fabricated sections — or blocks as they are frequently termed — has made it necessary to develop new and faster techniques for treating the fabricated sections before they are painted. Vacu‐Blast Ltd., a member of the Allied Polymer Group, has been studying the problem for some time and the first major order for a completely new style blasting and grit recovery system, has just been won against strong international competition, from Wits Amsterdam B.V. This well‐known paint contracting company — a subsidiary of Wits United — is installing the Vacu‐Blast system in two specially designed blasting halls provided by the Netherland Dock and Shipbuilding Company of Amsterdam (NDSM) for whom Wits have acted as contract coating specialists for 65 years.
