Victory after hundreds of years!

Thornton Consulting are proud to have been selected to identify leaks in the mastic caulking to the decks of HMS Victory in Portsmouth.

The ancient pitch caulking had been replaced with a modern polymer product but even that was letting in water at a few spots and causing problems below.

We employed a revolutionary vacuum test process to identify even the smallest problem points.
