Subsea Industries' new filler coat lowers cost of rudder repair

ANTWERP's Subsea Industries has introduced a new filler coating, called Ecofix, to repair ship rudders to be used with the company's own Ecoshield hard coating.

Ecofix, formulated to provide ship repairers and original equipment manufacturers with a cost-effective way to repair corroded or pitted steel surfaces, returns the thruster or rudder to its original state before touching it with Ecoshield.

"We are seeing an increasing number of propulsion and steering equipment suppliers apply tough hard coatings to their equipment for maximum protection against cavitation and abrasion.

"When a rudder or other piece of underwater gear has not been properly protected, the surface will become corroded. Cavitation results in severe pitting and the steel need to be restored to its original shape with a smooth surface before recoating. 

"This is where Ecofix comes in. It has been developed to repair most pitting or corrosion damage on rudders, stabiliser fins, thrusters and other underwater gear. It's as tough as the steel itself," Mr Van Rompay said.
