Corrosion Resistant Innovations in Maritime & Shipbuilding

Dynamic solutions for Increased Performance and Safety

The marine and shipping industries are among the largest constituent industries with ever-growing needs. Hence, managing the diverse operations related to shipping, ports, and maritime service activities safely and efficiently can be demanding.

Nylacast actively supports the industry's operational activities and consistently addresses industry challenges. Our commitment is to optimise vessel and portside handling equipment safely by offering customised and innovative solutions, leading to substantial improvements in maritime operations.


Industry Solutions

With a focus on corrosion resistance and enduring performance, Nylacast offers unmatched support in design and material selection. Our solutions contribute to significant cost savings and maintenance reduction, vital for vessels navigating the harsh realities of the sea.

Cost Saving Lower whole life costs are achieved in addition to increased efficiency through reduced frictional losses and lower power requirements.  
Maintenance Reduction Self-lubrication and corrosion resistance results in increased efficiency through lower whole life costs and longer machine running times.  
Corrosion resistance Corrosion resistant materials technology protects against the arduous environments.  
Low Weight Nylacast Engineered Products are typically 1/7th the weight of an equivalent steel product, helping to reduce overall equipment weight.  
Wear Reduction Low friction materials technology results in high resistance to wear and abrasion when in application.  
Self Lubrication Reduced and often eliminated need for additional and costly grease and lubricants through the use of low friction materials technology.  
Increased Safety Low weight results in lighter loads being handled by personnel during installation and servicing, eliminating the need for lifting equipment.  
Custom Solutions

Engineered products custom developed for specific application need from initial chemistry to end product.

Problems we solve

  • Chock Liner® Installation

Case Study: Enhancing Application Performance

Industry: Maritime and Shipbuilding

Original Material: Steel Fairlead

New Material: Nylacast Chock Liner®

Introduction and Background:

In this case study, we examine the contrasting outcomes resulting from a Category 4 Typhoon that struck two container ships during their new building phase in September 2022. The key differentiator in their preparation was the installation of Chock Liner® on one vessel while the other proceeded without this application. Both vessels were undergoing construction simultaneously, sharing similar specifications and design elements. However, one of the vessels incorporated Chock Liner®— a Patented low friction technology to support safe and reliable moorings.

Incident Overview and Analysis:

The Category 4 Typhoon had a significant impact on both containerships. The vessel equipped with Chock Liner®, however, demonstrated a distinct resilience compared to its counterpart.

  • Vessel with Chock Liner®: This containership experienced a notably lower degree of structural damage and maintained a higher level of stability during the typhoon. The Chock Liner® effectively absorbed and distributed the external forces, contributing to the vessel's enhanced structural integrity.
  • Vessel with steel fairlead/fake fairlead replica: In contrast, the containership lacking Chock Liner® installation suffered more severe consequences. The absence of this protective measure resulted in increased vulnerability to the typhoon's forces, leading to greater structural damage and compromised stability

Key Findings and Conclusion:

The presence of Chock Liner® significantly contributed to preserving the structural integrity of the vessel during the typhoon. The vessel equipped with Chock Liner® demonstrated superior stability in comparison to its counterpart without this protective feature. Chock Liner® played a crucial role in damage mitigation, absorbing and distributing external forces, minimizing the extent of damage incurred by the vessel. This case study highlights the importance of Chock Liner® installation as an effective measure in mitigating the impact of adverse weather conditions, such as a typhoon, on containerships during the newbuilding phase. The vessel equipped with Chock Liner® showcased a higher level of resilience and structural integrity, underlining the significance of such preventative measures in maritime construction.
