Polyurethane Coating Seals
Futura Coatings has developed a new coating for ship holds, which is designed to be corrosion and chemical resistant. The new product, called URA
Shield, is a spray-applied, elastomeric coating that forms a seamless "plastic- like barrier" according to the manufac- turer.
Futura specifically offers fishing fleet owners an option other than traditional fiberglass lining over plywood, a sys- tem, which can be susceptible to leak- age following numerous freeze/thaw cycles.
URA-Shield 5331 applied directly to plywood reportedly creates a seamless barrier to water and chemical intrusion.

Bio-Dur 561 Used For Ballast
Tank Lining Repairs
Professional diving services and Bio-
Dur 561 enable permanent repairs to be made to ballast tank linings without dis- rupting normal operating schedules, an option attractive to shipowners as it allows not only the vessel to stay in ser- vice but saves the time and cost of dry- docking. Bio-Dur 561 is based on a unique blend of liquid epoxy polymer an aliphatic polyamine curing agents, which is able to displace water from wet surfaces in order to make a permanent bond. The formulation is solvent free to ensure safety and maximum technical performance.

Belzona Offers Polymer Fixes
Since their inception 50 years ago, the marine community has used high per- formance polymeric compounds and specialized coatings extensively. Appli- cations range from small to large, from everyday repairs to once-in-a-lifetime jobs. Several repair techniques and products are type-approved by the major classification societies as well.
Polymers offer fast turnaround times, as repairs which traditionally took days or weeks can be accomplished in hours.
In many cases, repairs can also be car- ried out in situ, eliminating the need for costly disassembly.
