Introduction of EVA foam fender
EVA foam fender is a kind of constructive fender with polyurea materials as its outer protective layer and polyurethane foam core forming the resilient inner part.
The EVA foam fenders are constructed of three parts each providing an important function in the construction and lifespan of the fender. The three parts are:
(1) The closed cell polyurethane foam.
(2) Outer nylon cord fabrics.
(3) Polyurea spraying coat.
1. Foam Core
The closed cell polyurethane foam core used inside offers un-sink ability during operation.
2. Outer Nylon Cord Fabrics
The outer nylon cord fabrics is specifically designed to seal polyurethane foam inside ability during operation.
3. Polyurea Spraying Coating
Polyurea coating is permanent spray on coatings that protect the surface of fender body. It is more durable than rubber and flexible in all weather conditions: no softening in heat or becoming brittle in cold. Dent, scratch and chemical resistant.
Differences between EVA foam fenders and PVC fenders
EVA foam fender
Foam Core+ Nylon Cord
Polyvinyl Chloride PVC +Air Inside
Hollow, easy to be ruptured
High Energy absorbing,Low Reaction, Low hull pressures (just 172kN/m2)
Not as good as foam filled fenders
Because of unsinkable design, they can provide constant protection for ships
Because of easiness of rupturing, put ships in danger of collision
Even at the end of their first service life they can be returned to the factory for refurbishment before going back to work
Once broken stop working
