Transition from steel to technical plastic
Where steel and stainless steel are limited in design possibilities, technical plastic offers infinite customization solutions. In many cases, therefore, plastic can offer a good alternative to steel. After all, technical plastic meets a higher quality standard and has a better price-quality ratio than steel. The lightweight material is multi-purpose, for example for drinking water tanks.
Kemeling designed HDPE plastic customized drinking water tanks for the engine room of luxury yachts. This customer was keen to make the transition to sustainable materials and therefore opted for the long lifespan, the wide range of design possibilities and the light weight of technical plastic. The choice for HDPE also ensured that a higher quality standard of certificates could be given to the tanks.
Why steel to technical plastic?
