CHOCKING SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

For over 40 years, EPOCAST® has provided highly reliable chocking solutions for cruise ships, bulk vessels, LPG/LNG tanks, navy ships and many other marine applications. EPOCAST® chocking systems are economical and convenient for new builds as well as retrofits resulting in considerably shorter and easier installations, compared to traditional metal chocks.


INSTALLATION OF EQUIPMENT

The ship illustration shows the areas of applications for EPOCAST 36® and EPOCAST 36-P

If you are looking for a durable chocking solution that is easy and quick to install, EPOCAST has the product for you.

EPOCAST 36® is the registered trade name of the modern pourable epoxy resin chocking systems. For over 40 years, EPOCAST products have provided 

reliability and superior performance in countless shipyard applications all over the world, allowing considerably shorter and easier installations, compared to the traditional metal chocks. 

The basis of the success of EPOCAST 36® resin chocks is the low modulus and perfect cast in suit fit over large surface areas, combined with a high 

coefficient of friction and a high coefficient of thermal expansion. Together, these hold machinery securely, permanently, and without fretting or wear to the chock contact surfaces. Based on two-component Epoxy and PUR materials, EPOCAST 36® solutions can be specified for chocking hot vibrating machinery and critical alignment installation.


EPOCAST CHOCKING SOLUTIONS

EPOCAST chocking systems are economical and convenient for new building installation and for retrofits, due to the absence of any requirements of machining. Installation time is measured in days rather than in weeks, which is normally required for iron chocking. 

In the MARINE industry EPOCAST 36® is used widely for main engines of any size, auxiliaries, steering gear, deck machinery and crane rails.

EPOCAST 36®


EPOCAST 36® is a two-component pourable chocking compound with excellent physical characteristics replacing the conventional method of steel chocks when used for mounting main and auxiliary engines, gear boxes, steering gears, thrust bearings, stern tubes, etc. EPOCAST 36® chocks are not only econimical to fit but offer additional benefits such as their ability to fill any reasonable irregularity in the chocking interface and to reduce noise and vibration.

EPOCAST 36-P


EPOCAST 36-P is a trowelable thixotropic 2-component epoxy paste especially developed for installation of LPG/LNG tanks and other containment systems.

EPOCAST 36-P is a further development of our worldwide proven chocking/grouting system EPOCAST 36® and is everywhere in application where it is not practical to use a free flowing resin.

EPOCAST 36-P can be extremely loaded. It has good adhesive properties, even at very low temperatures.

EPOCAST 36-P has been approved by all major Classification Societies for temperatures from +80°C to -110°C and to -165°C.

EPOCAST 36-P in units of 8,0 ltr.

1 unit = resin + hardener

The cure time depends on the ambient temperature and is as follows:

- starting to cure after approx. 4 – 6 hours

- ready to take loading after approx. 72 hours

- fully cured after approx. 7 days


SHELF-LIFE:

The shelf-life  is 18 months after production.


FEATURES AND BENEFITS:

- Saves weight

EPOCAST F


EPOCAST F consits of a filled mixture of specially chosen polyoles curing with isocyanates to elastics polyurethane form materials. Due to the low exothermal reaction during the curing process – even of larger quantities – and the low shrinkage stress the chocking compound is excellently suitable for pouring of sensitive pressured devices and elements. 

EPOCAST F is characterized by long application times and smooth surfaces after curing even at increased air humidity.

EPOCAST F in units of 3,7 ltr.

1 unit = resin + hardener

SHELF-LIFE:

The shelf-life  is 6 months after production.

- Low exothermic reaction temperature

- Curing even in highly humid ambient atmosphere

- Protection against splash water 

  (e.g. in combination with EPOCAST 36®)


Devcon® CELLOFLEX-M


Devcon® CELLOFLEX-M is a coating procedure for avoiding corrosion damage to propeller shafts and couplings exposed to seawater.

Devcon® CELLOFLEX-M is a further development of our well tried and tested shaft coating system Devcon® CELLOFLEX, which has been proven in service over ten thousand times worldwide.

Propeller shafts of twin screw vessels often lie freely in water and are therefore subject to intense corrosion caused by vagrant currents. Devcon® CELLOFLEX-M coating has been specifically developed to protect against this corrosion.
