Belzona in the Marine Industry

Whether on the high seas or docked, repair and maintenance activities aboard ship present a unique set of circumstances for maintenance crews and operators.

Belzona is accepted by the American Bureau of Shipping, U.S. Navy, U.K. Ministry of Defence, Italian Registry of Shipping, Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, Class NK, Bureau Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd, Polish Register of Shipping and China Classification Society.

Belzona’s Advanced Polymers can be used to repair and protect a wide variety of equipment and areas onboard ship, and the following applications represent only a fraction of what can be accomplished through the use of Belzona.

In the Engine Room. A connecting rod went through the crankcase of this ship’s diesel engine casing. The holed casing was repaired quickly and easily with a Belzona® 1000 Series Metallic Polymer and a steel backer plate, saving thousands on the cost of replacement as well as weeks of dry-dock time.

This repair was completed by the ship’s crew under the guidance of the local, factory-trained Belzona Consultant.

Hull and Deck. This tugboat fender was split-in-half from the continuous impact cycles with other vessels as part of its normal function.   The tugboat operator utilized a resiliant Belzona 2000 Series Elastomeric Polymer and easily bonded the fender back together, avoiding the high replacement cost of a new fender.

Auxiliary Areas. A hole in the cutwater of this split case pump rendered this essential piece of equipment unusable. To execute the Belzona repair, a steel mesh was used to form a backing to which a paste-grade Belzona® 1000 Series Metallic Polymer was applied, fully restoring the cutwater to “like new” condition, and saving the customer considerable cost and time.

This rudder stock was worn by the spring loaded seal, causing water intrusion into the steering gear space.

Maneuvering. A paste-grade, 1000 Series Metallic Polymer was used to reform the seal area, thus avoiding the cost and inconvenience of replacement, or welding and machining. This type of repair can be completed in a matter of hours, whereas the conventional repair would have required several days, and hundreds of man-hours. Maneuvering
