About

Plastics are resistant to saltwater, UV, chemicals, sunshine and corrosion, making them perfect for marine applications. They are also lightweight, strong and more durable than wood or metal with superior resistance to weather and saltwater, making them the ideal material for marine applications.

Plastics provide superior weight to strength ratios & resist weather and saltwater much better than metal or wood. Plastics are also lightweight and moisture-resistant.

Environmental and Safety

Considering the total carbon footprint, including costs of raw materials, manufacture, transport, fabricate, install, maintain, plastics compare favorably with more traditional materials. Also, plastics are safer to handle and install. When you consider that most plastics are readily recyclable, they can become the most environmentally responsible and safest choice for many demanding marine applications.
