Rubbing strip on Rigid Inflatable (RIB) pilot boat.



Due to the high cost of the new rubbing strip and the high cost of the boat being out of use, the client required a fast repair to put the boat back into service.

Método de aplicación

Application carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SOS-12. after preparing underside of rubbing strip and counterface on hull, the strip was positioned, spacers were used to ensure a level fit, and taped into place until Belzona cured.

The only alternative was to remove the complete rubbing strip from the boat tube and glue on a new one. This would have mean possible damage to the tube costing thousands of pounds.
