DO IT IN COMPOSITE

YACHTING – SHIPBUILDING

Stern tube / Rudder post / Propeller / Beam

Anti-corrosion / Hydrostatic pressure resistance / Absence of styrene

The composite material use for marine applications is a long-standing tradition.

Pleasure boats have been composite-made for more than 40 years. A combination of laws, worldwide competition and technical evolutions has encouraged shipyards to use techniques such as the infusion process, the vacuum forming process, and even the autoclave machine. In the revolution parts sector, such as stern tubes, rudder posts, propellers, connecting beams, the filament winding technique has made it possible to produce cheaper and more robust composite parts.

The experience gained in the fields of the composite parts and structural bonding completion has enabled us to deliver parts whose geometry is ever more complex.

 

“The European legislation is now encouraging shipyards to reduce their styrene emissions (a monomer used to cross-link polyester resins). The parts, whose crosslinking is initiated by heat in a sterilizer, thanks to expoxide resins, are structurally better, more economical, and they don’t emit any steam.”

Jean-Yves Olivré (production manager).
