Customers return for more Ecoshield applications




Customers return for more Ecoshield applications

Over the last two months the rudders of several types of vessels were given an Ecoshield protective coating at yards in China, Singapore and Poland. A number of container vessels, oil tankers and roro vessels, all belonging to different owners were treated. All of these owners were returning customers.
 
They had experienced firsthand the devastating effect of cavitation on rudders coated with a traditional coating system. For this reason they decided to use Ecosshield to ensure lasting protection against corrosion and erosion damage for the rudders of their vessels for the remainder of their service life.
 
Besides offering rudder protection, Ecoshield is also suitable for thrusters, azimuth thrusters, azipods, thruster nozzles, kort nozzles, thruster tunnels and other underwater ship gear which needs special protection from corrosion. For this reason the nozzles of several of the vessels were also coated with Ecoshield, as was the propeller enhancement fin of one container ship.
 
It is the only coating known to fully protect a rudder from all cavitation damage.
