Solid rubber fender is characterized with high energy absorption and anti stress, low cost, long service life, simple installation and maintenance of polyurethane rubber fender floating characteristic is compression deformation, energy absorption, anti stress, self floating, easy to install. In general, rubber fenders can be divided into two categories according to their structures: solid rubber fenders (non floating) and floating rubber fenders.

Solid rubber fender (non floating type) is a kind of anti-collision equipment for Wharf ships, which has a long history and a wide range of application.  According to the force of the rubber fender, it can be divided into shear type, rotary type and compression type. According to the structure of fender, the solid rubber fender can be divided into D, taper, drum, fan-shaped, rectangular, cylindrical fender and so on.

Floating rubber fender can float freely on the surface of the water. According to its internal buffer medium, it can be divided into: inflatable rubber fender, filled rubber fender. The inflatable rubber fender uses compressed air as the medium and uses compressed air to do the work to consume the impact energy;

Foam filled fender, also known as solid polyurethane fender, the internal buffer medium, mainly closed cell foaming materials, such as foam EVA, foam polyurethane and foam rubber and so on. Therefore, the polyurethane fender is only one kind of rubber fender.

Solid rubber fender is characterized with high energy absorption and anti stress, low cost, long service life, simple installation and maintenance of polyurethane rubber fender floating characteristic is compression deformation, energy absorption, anti stress, self floating, easy to install.
