Chemi-Weld Fitting Method
Chemically welding a Collar to your boat is an even stronger fitting method. We use the same glue that high-rise buildings are now fixing large panels of glass in with, because it's stronger than bolts!
Above diagram: shows the aluminium box sections that are mig-welded or chemi-welded to the outside of the hull, for the Collar and all outside fixings to adhere to. This means no holes are drilled into your hull.
Not suitable for poly boats of any size.
UNSUITABLE HULL SHAPES
Lugs, extrusions, spray rails, etc
HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN USE MY BOAT?
Adhesive applied = 2 weeks minimum
When using the T-Rex Power glue, allow 1 week for box section glue to dry + a further 1 week for glue under Collar to dry before using boat.
Mig-welded method = 1 week minimum
When using the mig-weld system, it usually takes 1 day to fully fit the Collar. But allow 1 week for the glue line to dry before using your boat for first time.
SUPER STRONG FIXINGS
The fixings used are very strong and, due to their size, heavy. The extra weight is the biggest reason why a chemi-welded fitting may not be suitable for the average tinnie. As well as the extra costs (especially in labour) involved with this method.
Behind each box section, hidden in the middle of the remaining foam Collar, is a 4mm thick internal plate to anchor the screw. Plates are inserted as part of kit.
