Polymer Bearings for Marine Services

Advanced-EMC Techologies uses polymers in dynamic load-bearing applications helping to revolutionize virtually all mechanical products. We use various polymers such as, Acetal Products, polyethylene terephthalate (PET-P), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), Polyketones ( PEEK), polyamide-imide (PAI), that provide the most versatile performance capabilites an proven use in broad range of subsea bearing applications.

New product designs are continually pushing the limits of engineered plastic materials. Advanced- EMC consistently evaluates and researches new, advanced polymers to ensure optimal performance in next-generation product applications. We provide quick-turn prototypes; low to high volume machined bearing and injection molded components in most bearing-grade materials.
