Foam Filled Fender

In order to enable safe ship-to-ship and ship-to-quay berthing operations and meet the most stringent quality and performance demands, Newsmart manufacturer and supply the foam filled floating fenders as an alternative to the normal pneumatic, shock absorber (subject to quick deterioration) and rubber fenders (heavy and with a high reaction force). Based on its experienced polymer foam, Newsmart continues to lead the industry in reliability, quality and customer acceptance.
Newsmart foam filled fenders all share the same construction technology centred on a closed-cell PE (EVA) foam core and an outer skin of reinforced PU elastomer. Newsmart foam filled fenders absorbs the impacts whilst the skin resists wear and tear in use any tough conditions, providing tough heavy-duty fendering systems for harbor, offshore and ship-to-ship applications.
Features and Advantages:
*  High Energy, Low Reaction 
The high elasticity of expanded PE or EVA ensures high energy absorption with low reaction force, which is essential to eliminate the risk of damage to the vessel hull. 
To guarantee a good adhesion of the polyurethane cover to the expanded polyethylene or EVA, Evergreen studied a special type of expanded material with a polyethylene compound that presents a very good adhesion characteristic with elastomer polyurethanes. 
The expanded PE is wrapped and welded around the steel core, and is covered by an high thickness of elastomer polyurethane that gives goods abrasion and breaking resistance, which ensure a long performance even under strenuous conditions.
*  Unsinkable
Newsmart foam fenders are entirely made of closed cell elastic expanded PE or EVA that guarantees unsinkability even in case of damage caused by breaking, rupturing or shearing when hitting rough vessel sides. Ever cell is separate and so water cannot migrate into the foam.
*      Strong Reinforcement
In order enhance the performance of foam fenders, nylon fabric layers are individually applied at the optimum position. And skin and reinforcement are applied simultaneously. Meanwhile, multiple homogeneous layers increasing strength and additional reinforcement are applied as the transition layer. Special layers are applied to both ends where stresses are highest. This system enhances the ability of resisting to deflection and shearing force.
*       Wear Resistant
The polyurethane or SUPA elastomer is spray applied. This creates a high quality and homogeneous skin matrix combining extreme wear resistance with non-marking properties and the option of high visibility colors.
*        Enhancing Port Ability
The adoption of super size foam filled fenders enlarged the space between the ships and parapet of the wharf, and improves the depth of the berth, consequently improves the ability of loading/unloading, so as to create a new approach for upgrading the wharfs and improved the handling efficiency.

Construction Features:
The netless foam fenders construction consists of:

A.     A heat laminated 100% closed cell and resilient foam core that is high energy absorbing, with a low reaction force and cannot be ruptured. This fabrication process uses no adhesives, which decomposes after time therefore making the fender superior in quality, durability and function. This resilient foam-filled construction provides an unsinkable fender body that permits high energy absorption with a relatively low reaction force compared to most other fendering systems.
B.      In order enhance the performance of foam fenders; the foam fenders skin is constructed of a urethane elastomer which is reinforced with nylon filament in a continuous winding process. Meanwhile, multiple homogeneous layers increasing strength and additional reinforcement are applied as the transition layer. Special layers are applied to both ends where stresses are highest. This system enhances the ability of resisting to deflection and shearing force.
C.     Heavy duty internal chain connecting the end fittings is applied to transmit tensile loads through the fenders. (This will be equipped as per clients¡¯ requirement.)
D.     The integral swivel end fittings provide secure point of attachment without obstructing, even when the fender is compressed. The fittings are constructed of top quality steel.

The netless foam fenders construction consists of:

A.      A superior external chain and tire net, heavy-duty rubber tubing and chains that are connected at every intersection with a shackle. This is the key element in the  un-surpassed strength and resilience.
