Plastics can do more for Ship Building and Offshore SeaCor USCG- and ABS-approved corrosion-free plastic piping The SeaCor corrosion-free piping system, besides ensuring a long service life of the non-essential piping systems, adds a long list of additional benefits: SeaCor is approved by USCG, ABS, Transport Canada; NSF Certified, IMO and FTP Code compliant. Material weight savings drastically reduces the total deck weight. Faster, safer and secure installation, eliminating the need for hot work certificates. Plastic prefabrication capabilities radically reduce installation time on board. Enables installations with a minimum amount of tools especially in small or in difficult access areas. Service and maintenance costs are reduced significantly due to speed of installation portability and easy handling. Vessels are not only floating cities, but are also Offshore drilling rigs are exposed to the forces essential for the world's economy.

Corrosion-free piping systems. This guarantees the long service life of your systems. You save dry-dock time. You save service costs. You save maintenance costs. All in all, you are in business quick er. That is your benefit. You also save on weight. Plastic piping systems weigh approximately 5 times less than metal a savings of several tons per ship. This in turn allows for more freight, more passengers and therefore more profit.

SeaCor is a High Performance Polymer containing proprietary compounds that allow the material to have lower flame spread and smoke toxicity characteristics than other plastic piping systems available. How is it assembled? SeaCor is a solvent welded system utilizing a specially formulated primer and cement. We have incorporated optical bright- eners in our SeaCor formulation that can be viewed with a UV light as a means of inspecting the system to ensure the proper solvent cement* was used for joining that can be critical in marine applications; however, no special tooling is required for its installation. *SeaCor solvent cement has improved chemical resistance over conventional cements (chlorine resistance). Can the system be used in the engine room?
10 Yes, SeaCor can be installed in Category "A" machinery spaces for "non essential" services and/or appli- cations as approved by the USCG. Can the system be installed in accom- modation areas? SeaCor is approved for installation in concealed spaces in accommodation, service, and control areas, and need not meet the additional requirement of 46 CFR (a) (2) which requires the installation of smoke detectors. How do we connect SeaCor into exist- ing systems? SeaCor is the same size as steel pipe;. connection methods include NPT and 150# flanges, also specialized Norma, Waga, or similar approved combina- tion grip couplings allow SeaCor to be directly connected to IPS size metallic pipe. Is SeaCor fully approved by the USCG? Yes, SeaCor is approved for use in non-essential shipboard systems. The USCG recognizes the IMO A753 (18).
