SynDeck Underlayment on RFA Black Rover

SynDeck System refurbishment on RFA Black Rover, a fleet tanker of the British Royal Fleet Auxiliary.

The military and commercial shipbuilding and ship repair industry is highly focused on the fuel efficiencies that result from ultra lightweight materials and by giving the highest possible performance, lightest possible weight, and excellent corrosion resistance properties, one deck underlayment system – SynDeck - meets all the requirements of the marine industry.

 

When Southampton-based marine outfitters Trimline were contracted to carry out some refurbishment on RFA Black Rover, a fleet tanker of the British Royal Fleet Auxiliary, they contacted Euro Resin Solutions (ERS) for a recommendation for an alternative underlayment for interior deck spaces where water ingress had caused previous materials to separate from the steelwork.

 

“I had no hesitation in recommending the SynDeck system for this project,” said Wayne Rocket of ERS.  “We knew that it is one of the best in its field thanks to its light weight and performance. We were also able to give a guarantee that it would not lift from the steel decking – even in the wettest areas”. The result of 20 years of experience providing the marine industry with coatings and underlayments, The Epmar Corporation’s SynDeck underlayment system can be trowelled at any thicknesses between 6 to 100mm creating slopes and coving.

 

At one-third of the weight of latex and cement leveling systems, as no water or water soluble latex is used, bonding in potentially wet areas is much better then conventional cement leveling systems. SynDeck can be overlaid with most coverings including resins, carpet, tiles, vinyl, timber etc. Trimline were very happy to approve the use of SynDeck underlayment on this project and Wayne and his team were able to trowel the SynDeck to a uniform finish even though the steel decking was not flat and undulating.

 

SynDeck ultra lightweight underlayment is one of a complete line of Epmar products used in the construction, overhaul and repair of decking and other surfaces in marine environments. SynDeck products have full IMO approvals and meet US Navy military specifications for weight and performance – they lower maintenance and repair costs and have proven to be durable against corrosion and wear – even in the most extreme conditions. SynDeck is also available in a Terrazzo effect finish with clear sealers and enhanced anti-slip additives used to create a simple decorative appearance that saves more time and money.
