Friday 4th July 2014 marked a major moment in Royal Navy History, when Her Majesty The Queen smashed a bottle of Islay malt whiskey against the nations new air craft carriers, and officially named it HMS Queen Elizabeth. 

HMS Queen Elizabeth is the UK's biggest warship weighing 65,000 tonnes and stretching 280 metres in length, and 70 metres wide. HMS Queen Elizabeth was constructed in sections at various shipyards around the UK, and transported to Rosyth in Fife, Scotland. During the construction, over 10,000 people at shipyards and suppliers across the UK have been involved in its manufacture - Spraylat International Ltd was part of that.

In 2011 Spraylat International Ltd supplied Protectapeel in order to protect steel sections of the carrier. The liquid applied, temporary protective coating was used to protect bare, unpainted steel sections of the carrier, against rusting and tough coastal conditions during transportation and storage. Just prior to assembly, the Protectapeel coating was simply removed and the bare steel was in perfect condition ready for welding and painting. 

Spraylat International Ltd's managing director Andrew Keir said "we are delighted to be involved in such a prestigious project and pleased that our peelable coating was able to save the client both time and money."
