POLYMELT MACHINE The Polymelt 12 was designed to offer the following advantages: Ease of transportation Lightweight Compact for use in very confined areas No need for air compressor Multi voltage options Perfect for repairs and gun are all individually heated, therefore no need to flush machine after use
https://news.usni.org/2019/09/19/navy-shortening-maintenance-times-for-surface-ships-but-repair-industry-still-overloaded The Navy has a large backlog of surface ship maintenance it is trying to dig out of; that’s not new. And while the sea service and ship repair industry are making some progress in cutting back on administrative and other burdens that slow down maintenance availabilities, the contractors here in San Diego are so
As the exclusive distributor of Oxifree to the US Navy, VSM Group is dedicated to delivering superior products and services for the mitigating of corrosion through the use of Oxifree TM198. TM198 is a thermoplastic coating that protects metal components of all shapes and sizes against corrosive conditions on land and at sea. TM198 is
Oxitape is a moisture activated composite tape that cures in air or water to form a hard, protective shell which is chemical, UV, abrasion and impact resistant. Oxitape is simply applied over the top of Oxifree TM198 providing a defensive shell that offers complete protection from contact as well as corrosion and contamination. Following the application of
TM198 is melted down from a solid resin (in the supply unit) and applied using a heated hose and gun. It provides a organic, pliable thermoplastic barrier coating, which will protect all types of metal components against galvanic pitting and atmospheric corrosion as well as protecting from water and dust ingress. A key feature of
Corrosion is so prevalent and takes so many forms that its occurrence and associated costs cannot be eliminated completely. However, it has been estimated that 25 to 30% of annual corrosion costs in the U.S. could be saved if optimum corrosion management practices were employed. The bottom line is that the use of appropriate corrosion
