MARITIME INDUSTRY

 PLASTICS CREATED FOR SAFETY AND LONGEVITY 

PLASTMASS™ PLASTICS APPROVED BY THE MARITIME REGISTER

Our plastic material for plastic rear bearings and plastic rudder bearings has passed the test procedure and has been recorded in the ship register. Our quality management system complies with the requirements of the Maritime Register, which is confirmed by the documents "Certificate of conformity of the manufacturer's quality control system".

The durability and stability of our PLASTMASS™ plastics play an important role in shipbuilding when it comes to safe operating standards. PLASTMASS™ plastic products not only have better corrosion properties, they are also more environmentally friendly than metals. Thanks to their robust composition, our plastics withstand extreme conditions, friction and wear. Our plastics are more environmentally friendly and even reduce maintenance costs.

Benefits of using Engineering Plastics & High Performance Plastics

  • Sliding properties of engineering plastics and high performance plastics are better than bronze

  • The low coefficient of friction of our plastics significantly increases the lifespan of the sliding parts

  • Engineering plastics and high performance plastics can be operated without lubrication - a failure of the lubrication system does not lead to an immediate shutdown

  • Our plastics reduce noise and increase the shock and vibration resistance of sliding units

  • Engineering plastics and high performance plastics do not require running-in due to increased elasticity

  • High positioning accuracy and freedom of movement with small feeds

  • Works in dirty conditions with high abrasion resistance

  • Not susceptible to corrosion

  • Higher chemical resistance compared to bronze

  • Moisture absorption coefficient under 0.3% 

  • High dimensional stability

  • Frost resistance at temperatures down to -100 °C

  • Consistent properties during long-term operation
