Boat part solutions with motion plastics

Quiet operation and smooth sliding boat parts

The requirements for boat parts in sports boats, sail boats and yatchs are specific: for an engine, outboard motor or rudder system in a sports boat. The constantly wet environment means stringent requirements for resistance to weathering and corrosion within boat parts. Resistant to seawater and robust when exposed to wind and storms: these are the requirements igus® products have to fulfil in vessel construction. Being lightweight and functional is also important, especially in applications such as the interior of sports boats. Sports boats and vessels with igus® products are well-prepared for the requirements on and under the water. All igus® products offer you motion plastics advantages for the specific requirements in water, including in the area of vessels.
