In the Marine Industry plastics are a popular choice for large applications because they are resistant to saltwater, UV, chemicals, and corrosion. Flexible materials are used to help protect passengers, docks, and other structures year after year.Lock gate and port areas are shunted by wind and inclement weather. The ships shift thousands of tonnes that have to be intercepted by the ramparts. Plastic offers the best possible protection without causing deforming damage. The low water absorption and the high levels of wear and abrasion resistance ensure that PE gives the fenders and planks a long life span.
HMW or UHMW fender facings bolted or bonded to a fender front creates an unbreakable, low friction shield which protects surfaces from impact and abrasion. HMW or UHMW can be designed into the construction of new fendering structures, enduring continuous impact and rubbing, prolonged ultra violet light exposure, wide temperature variations, salt and chemical contact. HMW or UHMW fenders can be made of virgin HMW or UHMW, or regenerated HMW or UHMW.
Our Custom Fenders can be fabricated to customer specifications.
