Elasticity and persistence are key words in the construction and repair of boats and ships, which are constantly exposed to the buffeting of wind and waves.

The task of elastic bonding is to join, to waterproof, to dampen sound and vibration, to insulate and to prevent galvanic corrosion. These are all properties strongly associated with the marine environment, particularly in the manufacture, maintenance and repair of ships, boats and yachts.

• direct glazing of organic and inorganic mineral glass
