Belzona is known for supplying and supplementing onboard repair kits all around the world. Metal, rubber and plastic can all be repaired with ambient temperature curing epoxies and polyurethanes. The latest offering combines several features of these known and trusted materials. Belzona’s representative in Turkey, Oguzcan Sarikaya of Inter-Mar said: “Characteristics like surface-tolerance, fast cure, low-temperature cure and excellent adhesion to manually prepared surfaces are now all a part of a single product. As a result, at sea repairs can be smooth sailing no matter their complexity.”

One of the key solutions on display will be an epoxy and polyurethane coating system, which has been designed to withstand the effects of extremely high, localised pressures created by cavitation and erosion. Belzona’s representative in Germany, Tim Meyer of Belzona Service Nord, commented: “We have successfully carried out a variety of applications in marine vessels, developing an extensive know-how and track record in this area, ensuring high quality applications throughout commercial, leisure and military sectors.”

Belzona’s 100% solids epoxies are liquid applied yet durable in service. Their adhesive and compressive strength presents excellent bonding and shimming opportunities. Bonding the rudder bearing into position, Belzona epoxy resins provide a 100% contact between the bush and the housing, ensuring a permanent vibration-free location and preventing galvanic and crevice corrosion.
