MATERIALS, FINISHES
The extruded bumpers are made of Nordell EPDM Hydrocarbon Rubber. Molded bumpers are manufactured of nylon and polyester reinforced rubber. Laminated bumpers are made with rubberized-fabric recycled truck tires cut into uniform pads and punched to receive 3/4" supporting rods. The ends are enclosed with metal angles under 1,500 pounds of pressure and welded to the supporting rods. Some of the SeaMaster marine bumpers are made of non-marking vinyl.

EPDM is a synthetic rubber polymer made from ethylene, propylene, and diene monomers. It was develop in the early 1960s for use in the automotive, roofing, and aircraft industries. It's ideal for both interior and exterior applications - such as loading docks and parking garages - because of its excellent resistance to ozone, oxidants, severe weather conditions, and industrial chemicals. It provides very good resilience and tensile characteristics, resulting in very good impact performance and excellent long term durability.

SBR (Styrene butadiene rubber) is a lower cost synthetic compound which offers little resistance to ozone, sunlight and heat, and provides little resistance to oils and chemicals typically found in commercial and industrial applications.
