Coatings and Composites for the Marine Industry
Belzona metal repair composites and marine coatings are specifically formulated for rebuilding and protecting ships and offshore structures in the marine industry.
Belzona’s comprehensive range of rapid and cold-curing marine coatings and metal repair composites has been used by the marine industry for over 60 years. Our products are specifically designed to withstand harsh offshore conditions and have exceptional resistance against erosion and corrosion.
Providing metal repair composites to shipyards around the world, long-term protection is proven by years of successful experience with ships and offshore structures. Manufactured according to the ISO 9001 quality management systems, we have approvals from classification societies from all around the world including:
- American Bureau of Shipping
- Bureau Veritas
- China Classification Society
- Germanischer Lloyd
- Korean Register of Shipping
- Russian Maritime Register of Shipping
In addition, our products have received acknowledgements from the U.S. Navy and the U.K. Ministry of Defence.
Marine equipment suffers from cavitation, impingement and entrainment. These erosive forces destroy conventional coatings and lead to corrosion. Belzona have solutions to eliminate corrosion and reduce the effects of erosion.
Rudder repair and protection
Rudders suffering from erosion and corrosion are repaired and improved using Belzona’s high quality metal rebuilding composites and epoxy coatings. With insulating properties our erosion resistant products will stop corrosion and limit the effect of the erosive forces. Cavitation is combatted with Belzona 1341 (Supermetalglide) and Belzona 2141 (ACR-Fluid Elastomer) elastomer coatings.
Marine propulsion system protection and rebuilding
The marine propulsion systems vary depending on the type of vessel, but they all suffer from the same problems. Belzona offer metal rebuilding and resurfacing products to reclaim lost substrate. Protect kort nozzles, jet tubes, and propellers from future attack with erosion, corrosion and cavitation resistant products.
Shaft in-situ repair
Shafts are under high mechanical forces and this can often lead to damage. With Belzona’s metal rebuilding materials shafts can be repaired in-situ with minimal downtime. Our durable, corrosion preventative coatings protect tailshafts from the erosive and corrosive effects.
Engines in the marine industry suffer specifically from cracked casings and cooling problems. Cavitation and corrosion occurs heavily around the cylinder blocks and liners. These are resolved with our high temperature product range.
Storage tank repair and protection
With potable water approvals and high chemical resistance, Belzona can solve most storage tank problems, ranging from emergency leaks on wet and oily surfaces to chemical attack and corrosion damage.
Our metal repair composites and marine coatings are suitable for other areas including:
- Exhaust and turbo blowers
- Stern tubes
- Auxiliary diesels
- Tank cleaning systems
- Oily water separators
- Steering gear
- Deck winches
- Access ladders
