Sustainable innovations for shipbuilding & industry
Fiberglass reinforced plastic
In the shipping industry, seawater is used to cool engines of ships and yachts. The seawater is filtered, seaweed, shells and other pollution like the many plastic that is at sea is removed from the water. These filters are most commonly made out of metal. That is very corrosion-sensitive, the production is bad for the environment due to the heat and the filters can only be used for a maximum of 5 years. The solution for this is filters and castings of glass fiber reinforced plastic. Fiberglass-reinforced plastic is highly suitable for corrosion by seawater and external influences.
