igus® solutions for sport boats and other watercrafts

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, light weight 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. igus products are generally 100% lubrication-free. Due to their design, which was repeatedly rewarded with the IF award, they also appeal to users as visible parts on boats, as they are available in many finishes.
