Also known as ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, UHMW is an extremely durable material featuring high abrasion and wear resistance. People typically associate a variety of rubber compounds with fender products, however with the introduction of high-quality plastics you now have more choice than ever. We are able to supply these particular fenders in a vast selection of sizes as standard.
You can use our UHMW – PE – ECO sheets on their own, as a low-profile protective barrier. These low-profile fenders are particularly popular for use in marinas, jetties or any docking environments. This is due to the low friction properties that the material offers which greatly reduces damage and wear to the boat as well as the fender itself.
You can also combine our UHMW – PE – ECO sheets with existing rubber fenders, to increase the life span and add new properties. You can install this product as a face plate on rubber arch fenders for example to provide a low friction alternative. This increases the functionality of the rubber fender and enables you to replace the face plate at a fraction of the cost of a new fender.
