While fly fishing on the rivers of Michigan, an idea began to materialize.
In 1999, research for a new technology began with the idea to develop a process for bonding Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW) directly to common substrates including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, fiberglass, concrete, and wood. Testing quickly showed promise in certain applications, specifically, the boating industry.
With this new adhering and lamination process developed, a new product was introduced to a new market, and the brand, OceaPoly® was born. A better solution for protection against abrasion, impact, cutting and corrosion, OceaPoly® has transformed the marine infrastructure, search and rescue, military, and all commercial and recreational boating industries.
Long-term protection, increased safety, and decreased labor costs in one product.
Who else may benefit from this technology?
We’d love to hear your suggestions for a new market or industry that would benefit from OceaPoly®.
Manufacturers, installers, independent repair shops, and everyday people are all welcome to comment.
