Unique repair solutions for the Marine industry

ThistleBond Repair Kits

ThistleBond Marine Repair resins are liquid epoxide resins, which when mixed with the appropriate amount of hardener produces a mix that will have exceptional adhesive properties, making this the perfect repair matrix for metals, wood, glass, GRP and other synthetic materials.

UPS 19000 RH THISTLEBOND STANDARD RESIN & HARDENER is a specially developed epoxide, which ensures that the mix not only cures at normal ambient temperatures but also attains maximum strength in a reasonable working time.

UPS 19000 RH ThistleBond Standard Resin & Hardener
(formally TRK 19000)

Supplied in 10 Unit resin packs that are all pre-measured in correct proportions for subsequent mixing. Each individual unit contains one container of hardener and one container of resin. The resin container is designed to facilitate its use as a mixing container for both resin and hardener.

UPS 19003 ThistleBond A&B Cement

Specially developed epoxide repair compounds supplied in two separate packs marked A and B. when mixed together in equal portions by volume the cement will cure to an extremely strong mass with a better adhesive / laminate bond that one produced with the UPS 19000 RH ThistleBond Standard Resin Hardener.

UPS 19007/9 GT ThistleBond Glass Tape

Specially treated glass fibre fabric that ensures UPS 19000 RH will fully permeate the fabric and give the resultant glass fibre resin laminate repair excellent mechanical properties.

UPS 9911 Glass Mat

A fabric consisting of a random weave of glass fibres that will absorb a considerable quantity if mixed resin which, when cured, will produce a mechanically strong mass.

UPS 9913 Sealer Filler

Special non-asbestos filler in powder form for addition to the resin mix after the initial mixing has taken place. The resultant sealer filler mix has two very useful properties. The mix is very thixotropic and can therefore be applied to vertical areas. The mix can be applied to operate at temperatures up to 180°C (356°F). When it is applied a pre-coat, prior to carrying out a repair, it will help to insulate the resin laminate form the operating temperature of the parent body repair.

UPS 9912 Fairing Compound

A second filler consisting of glass fibre strands for addition to the resin mix after the initial mixing has taken place and can be used in a similar way to the Sealer Filler.

ThistleBond Marine Repair Kits are a must have maintenance tool which as the experience of the user broadens, can resolve an ever-increasing number of the maintenance engineers at sea problems. The ultimate strength and performance of these types of repair are very much dependent on the operating conditions and the correct repair procedures being adopted.

These types of systems have been marketed and sold for many years and their success, as a maintenance tool is well proven and established.

Before starting any repairs always ensure that the areas being repaired are isolated and / or pressure reduced as much as possible to achieve the best possible repair.
