✺ Stitching repairs to cast iron, steel, aluminium and other alloys.
✺ Usually repairs can be carried out onsite, saving time and cost.
✺ Maintains alignment and original surfaces.
✺ Absorbs compression stresses and spreads the tensile strains.
✺ Distributes the load away from fatigue points.
✺ The repair being completely cold does not introduce fresh stresses, and can be undertaken in most operating environments.
✺ Maintains balanced expansion characteristics when heated.
✺ A pressure tight seal can be achieved.
✺ Alloys MN211 & MN555 Metalock material are only provided to Association members.
✺ The Metalock repair process is recognised by Classification Societies.
Cooperation is created through the Metalock association; the local engineer is never alone should an unusual problem occur. Technical advice is readily available from hundreds of experts worldwide, essential when working out tight schedules to keep your down-time to a minimum.
