Unitor Introduces Shipboard Polymer Repair System

Unitor has introduced a new polymer repair System, which is designed to offer vessel operators the ability to undertake emergency repairs as well as permanent repairs to pipes, all types of mechanical equipment and machinery composites, including non-weldable materials. The package contains well-tested products, and a key component of the system is a 76-page marine maintenance manual, which covers each product and type of repair, using drawings to explain repair procedures. The products in the system are compatible with all ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as most plastics, and reportedly have been successfully used for permanent repairs.

Typical applications for the polymer repair system include: emergency repairs; situations in which hot work such as welding is not permitted; where the base material is not weldable; where distortion of the base material is unacceptable; where there is restricted workspace; where specific qualities are required; and where there is a need for non-metal repairs.
