Plastics for Ships, Boats & the Marine industry

Solutions in Plastic fabricate plastics and machine plastic parts to service boats, ships and the marine industry.

We specialise in rudder and stern shaft bearings to suit a broad range of vessels. Bearings can be manufactured in both straight, flanged (top hat) or spherical self aligning bearings.

Engineering thermoplastic bearings can operate lubrication and maintenance free, while bronze, rubber and rolling element bearings require regular maintenance. Plastics also don’t suffer from corrosion unlike rolling element ball bearings.

Our engineers can advise on the correct material to avoid swelling and to maximise wear life, as well as the correct design such as fits and clearances.
