Belzona® Elastomer Seals Chain Plate Casing On New Yacht



Marine (MRNE)



Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)


Customer Location:

Shipyard, Genoa, Italy


Application Date:

May, 1992


Application Situation:

Chain plate casings on a new luxury yacht under construction



At late stage in construction it was realized that the design of the chain plate location into the superstructure would allow water ingress. 



Belzona® 2131 (D&A Fluid Elastomer)



Stainless steel and Fibreglass


Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How Sysystem Leaflet GSS-4. As the application was partly vertical, tape was used to create a dam to enable the Belzona Elastomer to be poured into place.


Belzona Facts:

It was not possible to change the design of the chain plate location into the superstructure so the Belzona solution was the only option available to ensure this location remained watertight.
