Saltwater conditions are among the harshest on earth, and composite bearings and tubes perform well in these environments due to non-corrosive properties.

Leading boat and outboard engine manufacturers trust Polygon to deliver bearings that can meet the increasing performance standards of today’s marine equipment. Composite bearings and tubes are tough when used in saltwater and other wet conditions, with negligible absorption rates providing near zero swell. Whether it is more powerful engines or on-deck equipment that can stand up to corrosion and exposure, Polygon has the industry expertise to provide the right engineered solutions for marine bearing and tubing applications.

Potential Applications

  • Recreational watercraft
  • Outboard engines
  • Industrial and commercial vessels
  • Naval watercraft

Polygon bearings provide these benefits:

  • Corrosion resistance protects against saltwater and rust
  • Low to no moisture absorption
  • Lighter weight materials
