Ecofix restores corroded running gear to its original condition

Ecofix is a filler product which is used in combination with our award-winning Ecoshield hard coat system. Ecofix is specifically developed to provide ship owners and Original Equipment Manufacturers with a cost-effective solution for the repair of corroded or pitted steel surfaces.

The rudder of a LPG tanker was given the full treatment in Setubal, Portugal. First Ecofix was applied to restore the surface of the damaged rudder back to its original condition. Next it was coated with Ecoshield. This will protect the rudder from ever suffering corrosion and cavitation damage again.

Ecoshield and Ecofix are also suitable for stabilizer fins, thrusters, nozzles and other underwater ship gear which needs special protection from corrosion. Now these items can also be repaired prior to recoating when other, less effective coatings have permitted corrosion and cavitation damage to occur.

For this reason the corrosion damage on the rudder as well as in the thruster tunnel of a container vessel was repaired in Rotterdam with Ecofix before Ecoshield was applied.

We offer the full package; Ecofix restores the surface of the rudder or other underwater gear and Ecoshield will protect the area from ever suffering corrosion and cavitation damage again.
