Fascia Pads have excellent impact strength & high abrasion resistance. IRM Fascia Pads are made from Ultra High Molecular Weight material, which has a low coefficient of friction. These Pads have excellent impact resistance, high abrasion resistance, and high engineering strength, which help reduce the shear load transmitted to the structure.
There is always a floating layer of oil/ grease/diesel spilling out from vessels; when rubbed with the vessel's hull, the fascia pad material does not create any spark, which prevents fire, Unlike hazardous sparking due to metal-to-metal rubbing. This is the fascia pad's most important characteristic, making it essential for petroleum product berths.
IRM Fascia Pads are also used at small ferry wharves, passenger boat Jetties, and luxury wharves to protect high-end ferries and boats while berthing, offering a smooth surface, reducing friction, and protecting the hull.
- Low Friction
- Easy to replace
- High Mechanical strength & low weight
IRM Fascia Pads are available in a wide range of different specifications. The thickness range is generally between 30- 120 mm, and the overall size can be customisable as per requirement.
Large-size pads are not preferred to avoid distortion due to temperature variations.
