Background

SHIP BUILDING INDUSTRY

On the open seas, materials have to show what able to. The rough weather and the sea water eat away at the components that are built into boats, yachts and ships. Our plastics are suitable as the ideal companions on the water. Technical components made from our plastics withstand high mechanical loads and are low-wear. At the same time, they are resistant to the various weather conditions and sea water. Equipped with their own UV protection, our plastics can withstand even the strongest solar radiation. The premature material fatigue due to corrosion does not occur with plastic parts. You can rely on components made from our plastics in wind and weather.

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.
