Composite Fenders - Rubbylene® - Trelleborg Marine Systems

Composite Fenders

Overview


Composite fenders, also called Rubbylene®, are composites of rubber which provide resilience and UHMWPE with low friction and wear resistant properties. The two materials are bonded with a special vulcanizing method which is stronger and more reliable than a mechanical joint. 

Composite fenders are used where the simplicity of extrusions are required but with lower shear forces.
