- Highly resistant to seawater, steam and many chemicals.
- Withstands temperatures as high as 150° F and as low as - 60° F.
|PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF DOCK BUMPERS AND FENDERS|
|Material:||EPDM (Ethylene Propylene-Diene-Monomer)|
|Range of Service:||-60° F to 150°F (continuous duty)|
|Durometer:||70±5 shore "A" scale|
|Compression Recovery:||Instantaneous recovery of 90-95% is observed over a 20,000 to 200,000 lb. static load on one foot sample lengths of designated cross-sections. Samples have been compressed 70% by overall height without any damage.|
|Impact Resiliency:||As a function of fendering cross-section, high reaction loads with large energy absorptions have been transmitted with no damage experienced.|
|Shear Strength:||For rubber and rubber-like materials, average shear strength is usually taken as 50% of tensile or compressive strength as per application.|
|Life:||Excellent for weather condition in ozone.|
