What is Chockfast?
|Chockfast is an epoxy based, pourable compound
that cures at normal temperatures to become an extremely tough and durable solid.
Chockfast was specifically developed for chocking marine main
propulsion and auxiliary machinery and since its introduction in 1963 has earned the
approval of the major classification societies worldwide.
Other shipboard applications include
& Strut bearings, Pintle & Rudder Bearings, Pedestal Bearings, Steering Gears,
Stern Winches, Engine Room Pumps, Cargo Pumps, Cable Penetrations, Large Ball or Roller
Bearings, Bow Thrusters and Anchor Windlasses.
Chockfast is a registered trademark of the epoxy resin made
by ITW Philadelphia Resins Corp.
The resin itself can be used in an infinite number of
applications but it was developed especially for the chocking of marine diesel engines.
Due to the resins physical characteristics the costs gained by the quick, easy and trouble
free application have made Chockfast the preferable way to mount diesel engines.
Some of the points raised by the use of Chockfast are:
- Installation and chocking of the
engine is done within several hours instead of days.
- The hardened chock has perfect fit between engine and
foundation and therefore spreads the engine forces evenly over the entire bedplate thus
eliminating fretting of the contact surfaces.
In virtually any application...
