- Material resistance
The requirements for components in sports boats and other vessels are specific: whether for an engine, an outboard motor or a rudder system in a sports boat, the constantly wet environment demands resistance to weathering and corrosion. Resistant to seawater, robust when exposed to wind and storms: these are the requirements igus products have to fulfil in the construction of vessels. At the same time, lightweight and functionality are important, for example in the interior of sports boats. Sports boats and vessels with igus products are well-prepared for the requirements on and under water.
e-chain systems installed in many boats and other vessels guide any cable reliably and safely during electrical adjustments. iglidur plain bearings and drylin linear guides use dry operation and move sliding doors, hatches, steering systems, lift systems and all other rotating and swivelling components on a boat quietly and in a maintenance-free manner. Not only on sports boats are igus products always 100% lubrication-free. Due to their design, which was repeatedly rewarded with the IF award, igus products also appeal to users as visible parts on boats, also because they are available in many finishes.
Whether a prototype for a sports boat or boats in high-volume production, single components or ready-to-install systems such as linear modules with motors - all igus products offer you the motion plastics advantages for the specific requirements in water, also in the area of vessels:
