Cavitation Damage

Repaired on Ship Propeller - UK


(COST SAVING: £5,500)






A ship repair and conversion yard in the UK approached ThistleBond and asked the company to provide a cost effective, high performance repair system.


The blades of the propeller were badly eroded and corroded and needed to be rebuilt and then coated with an advanced protection coating.


The surface area was blasted and then cleaned using the UPS TAC 883 Universal Cleaner. The pitted and eroded areas were then rebuilt using UPS 200 EG Ceramic Repair Paste (TR200), once the compound had become touch dry, the entire propeller was coated with UPS 205 FG Fluid Grade Ceramic (TR205), giving the propeller blades added protection.
