"Blowfish" is a new concept to eliminate leakages in the outer hulplating of a ship.
If the situation acurse that the hul plating gets a demage, the pad is to be put into the leakage and has to be activated.
Blowfish is filled with profiles of the new shape memory plastic, Desmopan®.
As soon as activated ionisation heat is redundant making the profiles grow. The pad is blown up with solid bodies, eliminating the leakage.
A new combination of material and use define this live saver.
