Aircraft Support Industries Group (ASI) approached Boss Polymer to produce a custom, co-extruded industrial fender for the new A380 dock in Changi Airport. This fender was designed to be installed in the gantry, to protect the aircrafts outer surface from damage during maintenance. Boss Polymer employed their co-extrusion skills and high-tech machinery to design, test and manufacture a highly specialised, thermoplastic co-extruded fender using two separate, differently coloured materials.
The outer yellow section of the fender uses a compound that is UV resistant and flexible, allowing it to compress and protect the aircraft’s surface. The lower, black section of the fender uses a harder compound, allowing the profile to firmly grip onto the gantry.Make an Enquiry
