In the field of water sports and leisure, expanded resins (EPS, EPP and EPE) are efficient buoyancy components found in boats, jet skis, life-vests, lifebuoys and other nautical accessories, thanks to their wide range of properties.
Expanded polymers also offer floating solutions used in:
- Level gauges
- Drainage systems
- Floating docks
- Floating components for watercrafts
- Floating accessories for boats and pools
- Water resistant cushions
- And others…
EPS, EPP and EPE are closed-cells materials that are water resistant. This characteristic is crucial to the production of weatherproof seats and cushions. Soft EPE cushions do not soak up water, providing a more efficient alternative to the usual sponge foam padding that absorbs water.
