Modern Material Science Solutions for the Marine Industry
Thermoplastic polymer (TPU) films offer extensive applications and benefits for boating applications. Argotec films for marine applications are flexible and durable, engineered to withstand harsh aquatic environments. For protection against saltwater, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures, Argotec-engineered films are ideal for boating and marine equipment.
Thermoplastic Film Applications for the Marine Industry
Argotec engineered filmsare used widely in boat manufacturing and varied marine equipment, including:
- Hull Protection
- Inflatable Boats& Life Rafts
- Water Bags
Polymer films for the marine industry are widely used in the manufacturing of inflatable boats, life-rafts, water bags, and other marine equipment. They serve as a protective layer that enhances durability while ensuring optimum performance even in the harshest conditions. Boat TPU films are also employed in the production of anti-fouling paint to prevent the growth of sub-aquatic organisms on the hull which can affect a vessel’s performance and durability.
Benefits of Argotec Specialty Films for Marine Equipment
Argotec TPU films exhibit exceptional properties such as high abrasion resistance, transparency, elasticity, and resistance to oil, grease, and various solvents, making them a preferred choice for multiple applications in the marine market. Lightweight and easy to install, Argotec films are also a practical choice for product engineers in the marine market.
Our engineered polymers offer superior protection against moisture, corrosion, and UV radiation, helping to extend the lifespan of boats and reduce maintenance costs. Highly versatile, Argotec films can be customized to meet specific requirements, allowing boat manufacturers to create tailored solutions for their customers.
