Repair and protection of equipment and structures
Devcon's rubber repair epoxy, such as Devcon R-Flex provide exceptional impact resistance and effective repair options for rubber-clad equipment and fenders. They eliminate the requirement for vulcanization while preserving repair durability.
Additionally, Devcon offers cold plate bonding solutions for heavily worn and corroded decks, offering a swift and secure alternative to replacement. These solutions ensure that assets remain operational and dependable, even in demanding maritime and industrial environments.
Furthermore, offshore wind farms face substantial erosion and corrosion challenges due to their operation within a splash zone environment. Devcon offers a selection of surface-tolerant materials, with Devcon Plastic A being a prime example. These metal putty are exceptionally well-suited for the repair of damaged metalwork and the sealing of exposed or leaking components, whether at the base or within the tower of the wind turbine.
For equipment operating under submerged conditions or in contact with aqueous solutions, applying Devcon Brushable Ceramic as an overcoat provides an effective corrosion-resistant barrier. This ensures the continued reliability and durability of crucial components in the demanding offshore wind energy sector.
Repair and protection of propulsion and steering gear systems
Corrosion-related issues in marine propulsion systems can be effectively addressed by employing a range of Devcon metal repair putty. These materials not only halt corrosion on components like jet tubes, kort nozzles, and bow thrusters but also mitigate galvanic effects by isolating exposed metal.
Products such as Devcon Plastic A & Devcon 5 Minute Putty, Devcon Titanium Putty are especially well-suited for shaping equipment like pintles, bearing housings, and bush seats due to their 100% solid composition, which prevents shrinkage during application.
Devcon's metal repair putty are commonly employed to address corrosion and erosion damage found on auxiliary equipment onboard, including heat exchangers, valves, and pumps. To ensure optimal results and protection, a diverse selection of epoxy coatings is offered, providing resistance against erosion, corrosion, chemicals, and temperature variations
