What is Foam Filled Rubber Fender ?
Foam Filled Rubber Fender is a floating type compressive fender using lightweight and high elasticity foam as a buffer medium to absorb impact energy. It is made of a closed cell EVA core and an outer polyurethane skin. Foam fenders outer layer has an extremely low frictional resistance and is highly resistant to wear due to its proven strength. Impact force is efficiently absorbed by the close cell foam fender, reducing the resultant force acted upon the wharf/vessel at the point of contact.
As an alternative to the pneumatic rubber fender, foam filled fender is extremely durable. Moreover, without air inside, there’s no risk of bursting or sinking.
