|The traditional dolphins mooring are wood. But due to plastic has better waterproof and other properties. It increased its useful life. Can be 4-6 times than wood. So that is the reason why wood dolphins mooring had been replaced by plastic dolphins mooring gradually.|
|Plastic pile compared with metal pipe and reinforced concrete pile|
|1.||It is easy to have chemical reactions with oxygen, especially in swamps, wetlands, mudflats, sea lakes and other places with heavy moisture, rust and corrosion, so it is necessary to do antisepsis regularly.|
|2.||When in salt, alkali, Marine and other environments, it is also easy to have chemical reactions with its chemical substances, and corrosion.|
|3.||Metal pipe is generally hard and brittle. When it gets a big momentary shock, it is difficult to slow down the impact force through elastic deformation, and it is easy to be cracked and fractured by impact. Affect its service life.|
|Reinforced Concrete Pile|
|1.||The reinforced concrete pile is made of cement, sand, stone and water. Although it is hard after solidification, it is prone to chalking if it is immersed in water environment for a long time, not only seriously polluting the water environment, but also reinforced concrete piles. It will become mottled because of constant erosion, and the impact resistance will be seriously degraded.|
|2.||Reinforced concrete itself has poor tensile ability and is prone to crack or fracture due to tension. When used in water environment, the disadvantage is more significant.|
|3.||Using reinforced concrete pile, usually need site construction, not only cost labor, cost form-work, and often site construction cycle is long, and also subject to seasonal influence, seriously affect the completion time of the project. Site construction period is long, affected by the season.|
|1.||Plastic pipe not only has excellent comprehensive and tensile properties, but also has good elasticity, toughness and impact resistance.|
|2.||With no corrosion, no rust, good weather resistance, oxidation resistance and other advantages, easy to cut, drilling and simple installation.|
|3.||Very suitable for all kinds of harsh environment, acquiring high feedback by customers. Will not effect its performance after long-term usage.|
|1.||What other products do you have for dock application?|
Winstar specializes in providing hydrophilic series of products, such as dock decking, mooring pilling etc all use recycled plastic as raw materials, it has excellent waterproof and superior performance in water, can completely replace the wood application, supporting use will have better performance.
|2.||Do marine plastic fenders require regular maintenance?|
HDPE Plastic fenders developed by WINSTAR adopt 90% min recycled plastics with fiber bars. It has better impact resistance, almost zero water absorption, so that products will not rot, mildew and brittle. Additives such as anti-aging and anti-ultraviolet are added in the raw materials so that the product will not effect their life and properties due to aging. Therefore, Winstar HDPE plastic fenders are free maintenance.
