Wencon UW Cream
Wencon UW Cream is a two component cream, to be applied on wet surfaces or under water. The UW Cream is excellent for filling up holes, dents and rebuilding of surfaces which, due to high humidity, has to be done in wet conditions.
Typical applications are corroded hulls and all underwater parts of ships and structures, tanks, pipes, flange faces, etc. It is also excellent for filling up cavitation damages on hulls and rudders.
After curing Wencon UW Cream is resistant to oil, saltwater, water, most diluted acids and a range of solvents.
- Can be applied on wet surfaces or under water
- Cures under water and on wet surfaces
- For filling up cavitation damages
- Long pot-life under water
- Strong adhesion to all metal and GRE surfaces

Wencon UW Cream is a two-component compound to be applied on wet surfaces or under water. The UW Cream is excellent for filling up holes, dents and rebuilding of surfaces which, due to high humidity, have to be done in wet conditions.
After curing Wencon UW Cream will show many of the same characteristics of metal, together with outstanding adhesion to all metallic surfaces, this makes the compound highly suitable for repair and rebuilding corroded and worn metal surfaces.
Wencon UW Cream is non-conductive and will therefore not cause bi-metallic corrosion. After curing Wencon UW Cream is resistant to oil, salt water, water, most diluted acids and a range of solvents.
Typical applications are corroded hulls and all underwater parts of ships and structures, tanks, pipes, flange faces, etc. Wencon UW Cream is also suitable for filling up cavitation damages on hulls and rudders.
Wencon UW Cream has to be mixed above water in the mixing ratio 1:2 by volume.
Two-component solvent free pasty consistency epoxy repair compound, for applying under water or on wet surfaces.
Before applying, the surface must be clean from loose paint, scales, under water growth, etc. A mechanical cleaning will do, but even better, if possible, hydro jetting.
Mix by volume 1:2. Mix until an even color is obtained. The mixing has to take place above water. After mixing, the product can be taken into the water.
Depending on amount mixed and the temperature. Mixed in small amounts, the pot life is approximately 25-35 minutes at 20°C (68°F)
Wencon UW Cream is applied using the spat- ula supplied with the kit.
In order to ensure close contact, be sure to work the product well into the surface to be treated.
Curing will take place in 10-18 hours, but only if the temperature allows it to cure. Curing requires a temperature of at least 10˚C (50˚F), but better at 17-23°C (62-73°F) or higher.
If the coating shall be exposed to chemicals, let it cure for 7 days before exposure.
REDUCED CURING TIME WITH INFRARED
This product is tested with and suitable for infrared curing. Curing with infrared radiation can reduce curing time significantly. Result can vary, depending on circumstances and equipment used.
After curing, the product can be machined, drilled and worked like metal.
