General surface support buoys are constructed by resilient closed cell polyethylene /EVA foam around the inner central steelwork, covered by polyurethane (PU) outer kin. General surface support buoys are extensively used in single-point mooring (SPM) systems as chain support buoys or floats.
The resilient closed cell polyethylene/EVA foam core guarantees self-fendering and is unsinkable even in case of damage.
General surface support buoys have a flotation core manufactured from resilient closed cell polyethylene or EVA foam around internal steelwork. The closed foam ensures the buoy will not absorb water even if the skin is punctured, increasing the lifespan of the product and reducing maintenance costs. The resilient foam core makes the buoys self-fendering with a high impact absorption capacity.
The foam core is encapsulated within a skin of tough, abrasion-resistant polyurethane elastomer applied by our well-proven spray technique. The polyurethane elastomer skin is high resistance to abrasion, fatigue, and ultra-violet degradation together with excellent resilience. It does not attract marine growth. For extreme operating conditions, the PU skin can be reinforced with polyester material during the spray process as reinforcement to add further strength.
The self-colored skin can be supplied in orange, yellow, red, black, and naval grey for ease of identification.
