Repairing and filling damages
The drive shafts of ships are often subject to wear damage due to heavy friction. The epoxy resin system WEICON WR can be used for repairs and for recasting damages. In addition, the epoxy resin system is suitable for repairing and filling damage caused by cavitation.
Casting and coating resin
WEICON Urethane 80
The drive shafts of ships can gradually be damaged by marine animals. In order to protect the shafts long-term, they can be additionally protected with WEICON Urethane 80 after the corrosion protection coating with WEICON Ceramic BL. The rubber-like material can be used as a final coating on the ship’s drive shaft to protect it from any external influences.
Repair of a ship propeller
Ship propellers are often subject to severe wear damage because they are constantly in contact with aggressive media such as seawater. To repair heavily strained propellers and protect them from further damage, the epoxy resin system WEICON BR can be used. The pasty repair compound is bronze-filled and is therefore ideal for the repair, preparation and filling of blowholes, bronze parts and bronze castings.
Ideal for small repairs and bonding
WEICON Fast-Metal Minute Adhesive
In the maritime industry, repairs often have to be carried out quickly. Here, products are required that have a fast initial adhesion and a short pot life. WEICON Fast-Metal Minute Adhesive boasts exactly these properties and can thus be perfectly used in the marine industry. Owing to its gap-filling properties, even on rough surfaces such as cylinder blocks of ship engines, it quickly fills cracks, cavities and unevenness. It is therefore indispensable and should always be at hand.
Corrosion protection and water displacement
An all-round product should always be available on board. WEICON W 44 T® Multi-Spray is suitable for all of the following applications: as lubricant for squeaking or seized parts, as a cleaning agent for tools or as corrosion protection for metal parts.
