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. And it's widely used in harbour, offshore platform or ship to ship operations. Jerryborg's foam filled fenders are available in black and other customerized colors upon customer's request.

Structure of Foam Fender
1. 100% closed cell EVA foam
Each cell of EVA foam is separated, so water cannot migrate into the foam, which ensures a high amount of buoyancy, even in case of damage to the outer polyurea (SPUA) coating. Even after many years of active service, the foam core can be returned to the factory, re-skinned and made ready for a new lease of life. A wide range of foam densities are available, from 20Kg/m³ to 200kg/m³, to offer a high dissipation of Energy and a low Reaction Force.
2. Polyurea (SPUA) coating skin
Polyurea is a type of elastomer coating which is sprayed onto the EVA foam core, thereby improving performance of foam fender and giving the fender increased resistance against abrasion during operations. Thickness of Polyurea coating is customized as per customer demand, usually from 3mm to 100mm. Jerryborg’s wear and tear resistant Polyurea coating let our foam fender performs well in even the harshest environments.
