Maritime applications

Specific applications: metal ball bearings sprayed with plastic (ship propellers), conductors and parts for doors and hatches.

Products used in shipping, no matter whether they are for recreational sailing or the professional sector, must generally meet high-end specifications. Plastic is often used instead of the conventional metal. The parts must not only be strong, impact resistant and resistant to chemicals and UV. The supplier must also be able to guarantee reliability over a very long service life. After all, the failure of a function during full-scale operations can cause very high costs.

KIK has mastered the art of translating the often extreme requirements for maritime applications into solutions that have amply proven their reliability. We are pleased to use our huge knowledge potential to make our own particular contribution to this innovative sector, even for relatively small product series.
