Transportation

Trains, buses, trucks, boats and RVs are lighter weight, more durable, safer and more comfortable thanks to plastics. In both aesthetic and structural / bearing applications, plastics help you travel further for less money.

 

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 semiconductor applications.

 

 

Applications:

·         Marine — seating, switch board panels, relay bases, bearings, bushings, port hole windows, cabinetry, seals, trays, decking, bimini surrounds

·         Marine  — Cutting boards, anchor shrouds, fuel / fluid handling tubing

·         Mass transit (rail car and bus) — bearings, pedestal liners, coupler carrier wear plates, brake bean guides, center bowl liners.
