Types of Rubber Products for the Marine Industry
Rubber products are critical in the marine industry. It’s a versatile and highly resilient material that is used not just for door seals but for protective fenders on harbour walls and boats. Marine parts are constantly being bombarded by the elements, whether that’s the corrosive salt from the sea or the changing elements and abrasive surfaces.
In some instances, such as creating a watertight seal, materials like neoprene, EPDM and natural rubber are used because they are flexible and can be moulded to a high degree. Rubber for fenders needs to be able to absorb significant impacts, for example, while still maintaining shape and integrity. It’s not just the outside of the ship or boat where you find a variety of rubber extrusions and, as you might expect, quality is vitally important.
