Polymers VS Metals in the nautical sector – The winning choice by BUCCHI

Applications intended for the nautical sector are among those subject to the most intense mechanical, thermal and environmental stress: in addition to stress deriving from the use itself, the effects of water, weathering and solar radiation also need to be considered.
The nautical sector is also among those that are heading towards greater innovation: the plumbing systems of boats are increasingly sophisticated and the electrical systems and electronic systems are technologically more advanced and delicate.
For this reason, the choice of accessories for the nautical sector must be careful, and based on a good knowledge of products and materials. BUCCHI is among the pioneers in Europe as regards the introduction of techno-polymer products for the nautical sector.
The advantages of these raw materials, compared to bronze and brass, traditionally used in the nautical sector, are multiple: absence of oxidation, electrical insulation without galvanic corrosion, reduced condensation, high elasticity, low weight, greater versatility, high tensile resistance, maximum lightness and excellent resistance to high temperatures. Traditional metallic materials can cause serious damage to boats, from corrosion of the pipes to blockage of handles and valves, with consequent (and costly) repair work. The winning choice is the purchase of techno-polymer products, which guarantee excellent results and high levels of performance, for any application in conditioning and cooling systems or water distribution.
BUCCHI products and accessories are also constantly checked and controlled, and the production process is internal to the company, with constant study and continuous development.
