The FLOATEX buoy type PE 800 belongs to the ultimate generation of navigational aids. The buoy start-up project took in consideration the necessity of lowering as much as possible costly maintenance programs, typical of steel buoys, creating a product from enviromentally friendly materials thus reduce waste materials such old paint, zinc coating and sandblasting processes usually related with the traditional steel products.
The PE 800 buoys outer shell are made in UV-stabilized linear virgin polyethylene.The polyethylene used in the manufacturing process is completely recyclable (ECO-friendly), it's fully compatible with the marine enviroment, and has a high resistance to UV rays. Being linear has the advantage that it can be melted and hence by hot fusion welding.
The colour pigment is moulded-in and consequently not added as a coating ensuring greater life of the colour and a big help to the enviroment as it never requires additional paintings, avoiding toxic dispersion in the water. Floatex polyethylene requires a minimal maintenance.
The PE 800 buoys are then filled with closed-cell polyurethane foam. The polyurethane foam ensure great resistance to the leakage water, ensuring unsinkability to the buoy also in case of accidental breaks of the outer shell. The polyurethane foam is 100 % made and tested before production by our R&D laboratory.
The buoy design, construction and material combinations allow for the PE 800 product to be installed anywhere : open sea, shelterded bays, channels ,rivers and protected areas.
The buoys are usually complete with fixed steel plate on bottom part for the connection with the mooring line. The top part of the buoys can be equipped with marine top-mark from marine grade aluminium (optional).
The PE 800 buoy normally equipped with a LED self-powered marine lantern.
