WATERCRAFT INDUSTRY

The high seas are one of the greatest challenges for materials. The rough weather and the sea water cause high wear and tear on components that are installed in boats, yachts and ships.

 

Technical components made from our plastics can withstand high mechanical loads and are low-wear. At the same time, they are resistant to different weather conditions and sea water. Equipped with their own UV protection, our plastics can withstand even the strongest solar radiation. 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.
