H.B. Fuller TS365 Marine Chocking Compound

H.B. Fuller TS365 Marine Chocking Compound is a two-part epoxy mixture with good pouring performance. After curing, it has a high compressive strength and compressive modulus of elasticity, as well as excellent heat resistance, impact resistance, and self-extinguishing from fire. TS365 can be applied for positioning during assembly of various marine equipment, such as the main diesel engine, auxiliary machinery, stern tube, deck machinery, etc.

Applications & Uses

Cure Method
Application Instructions
  • Materials required: foam damming materials, metal dams, sealing adhesive, release agent, washing agent or acetone, heavy duty hand electric drill with an operating speed of 200 rpm, jiffy mixer, knife, infrared thermometer, heater (used when the temperature is below 13℃), protective gloves and goggles.
  • TS365 marine chocking compound: try to store the adhesive at (23±2)℃ for at least the last 12 hours before use.
  • Clean: clean all surfaces that the adhesive will contact, they should be free from grease, oil, water, rust or paint.
  • Adjustment: the machine’s alignment and the casting cavities should be adjusted to the required size through the adjustable bolts, wedge blocks and so on.

  • Samples: pour the mixture about 300 g to the appropriate small box, after curing test Barcol hardness.
  • Curing: It is appropriate when Barcol hardness of samples and chocks is higher than 35. Make sure the temperature is at least 13 ℃ , use heater if necessary.
  • After curing: remove the iron dams, take the sharp edge off the over pour; adjust the adjustment bolts and wedge blocks; tighten the hold down bolts to the desired tension or torque.
