Essential Marine Materials: Closed-Cell Foam Sheets Explained

Is constant exposure to water taking a toll on your boat? Saltwater can cause metal components to rust and timber to rot. Harsh UV rays can further break down materials, leading to cracks and leaks.

Their closed-cell structure also shields against UV rays, safeguarding the integrity of your boat’s materials.

From keeping engine parts protected under the hood of a car to shielding wetsuit wearers from the sun’s rays and cold water, neoprene tackles challenges in the automotive world, outdoor settings, and beyond.
