Marine Applications

For many years now, polyurethane has been specified for many different applications in the marine industry due to its unique ability to be tailored to the project. Whether PU foam is needed to insulate the cabin of a narrow boat, reduce cooling costs for cold stores on fishing vessels, provide buoyancy for pontoons and buoys or any other application, Edu-Chem can supply a suitable polyurethane system and any advice required. Along with many other benefits, polyurethane foam can provide:

  • High levels of thermal insulation per unit thickness -- allowing insulation levels to be met with minimal depth of insulation and delivering valuable space savings
  • High water vapour resistivity -- controlling condensation even on steel hulls with minimal depth of insulation
  • High closed cell content -- resisting the passage of water even when submerged and preventing loss of insulation properties when dried out
  • Can be poured, sprayed or injected -- virtually any space can be insulated quickly and easily
  • Can be tailored to suit the application -- Edu-Chem can supply foams specifically designed to perform functions such as buoyancy, acoustic or thermal insulation

Edu-Chem supply a wide range of EduFoam systems, suitable for virtually any marine application, and also have a network of approved contractors throughout the U.K. specialising in many different areas of expertise.
