Subsea Industries Launches Ecofix

Subsea Industries, based in Antwerp, has introduced a filler coating, Ecofix, for use with its Ecoshield hard coat system.

Boud Van Rompay, executive director of Subsea Industries, said: “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 damage, both of which can lead to widespread corrosion if conventional coatings fail.

“When a rudder or other piece of underwater gear has not been properly protected, the surface will become corroded. Cavitation damage can cause severe pitting and the steel needs to be restored to its original shape with a smooth surface prior to recoating.

“This is where Ecofix comes in. It has been developed to repair most pitting or corrosion damage on rudders, stabilizer fins, thrusters and other underwater gear. It’s as tough as the steel itself.

Ecofix, because it is part of the Ecospeed/Ecoshield family, it is non-toxic, the company noted.
