Rawwater Kinetic Displacement

Rawwater Kinetic Displacement involves ‘spraying’ specially formulated low melting point alloys. Examples of use include: repairing leaks in vehicle radiators and fuel tanks (without the need to defuel), as well as leaks in other mobile and static equipment. 

The sprayed alloy solidifies instantly to seal holes and cracks, as well as positive and negative pressure leaks. Operating at low temperature and low pressure, the process offers exciting opportunities to carry out repairs to a range of ‘live leaks’. The solidified spray can easily be removed by re-heating. For higher pressure leaks, we are also developing a unique ‘molten bullet’ application technique.

Example applications include:

  • Repairs to and reinforcement of cracked concrete structures
  • Repairs to cylinders, containers and pipes 
  • Repairs to metal castings and blocks (gearboxes and engine casings)
  • Repairs to fuel tanks
  • Repairs to vehicle radiators, hydraulic/pneumatic systems and pipes

The exceptional capabilities of Rawwater’s alloy spray technology makes it ideal for emergency repairs in the field.
