Vikubo Offers Free Brochure On Foam-Filled Floating Fenders

Vikubo B.V., Nijverheidsweg, Holland, is offering a free four-page brochure on their foam-filled floating fenders, Vikubo Shipcushions®.

Vikubo ship cushions are built from a combination of polyethylene foam of 49 kg/m3 (3.06 lbs/ft3) core, covered with a polyurethane elastomer coating. Running the length of the axis is a heavy polyurethane elastomer pipe for passing the "hanging up" chain through or a protected tensed chain between two end caps or a net of chains and tires around the fender.

Several photos, as well as charts, graphs and diagrams are included in the brochure to supplement the text, and further explain the structure and durability of the Vikubo Shipcushion.

According to the brochure, the Vikubo Shipcushion not only provides greater stand-off distance than conventional fenders at the same energy absorption level, but also is unsinkable and cannot explode under pressure or excessive compression, and even when the fender is overcompressed, there will always be energy absorption material between the two objects. In addition, the publication states that the fender does not require inflation and is not impaired by seawater, sunlight or oil.
