SeaPile® and SeaTimber® by Bedford Technology are advanced composite plastics, engineered for the marine industry. Manufactured from recycled HDPE and fiberglass stand and rod, the stiffness of the product can be varied and controlled to suit your specific marine application. Increase your life-cycle cost and return on investment by using these product lines as an alternative to traditional wood, metal and concrete.
How is it Made? Multi-X Technology
Our environmentally-friendly three-stage Multi-X Technology manufacturing process includes first making a cold core (internal filler). Next, we extrude an annulus material including fiberglass rebar and fiberglass strands, which determines the strength of the plastic timber based on the number of bars. Finally, a dense skin that creates a low-friction surface is extruded over the cold core and rebar. The skin comes in many different colors and can be customized for your project’s specific requirements.
Benefits of SeaPile® and SeaTimber® by Bedford Technology
Products created with Multi-X technology can withstand heavy impacts by absorbing energy through recoverable deflection. SeaPile® and SeaTimber® by Bedford Technology offer coastal protection without damaging the environment. Both of these products provide a durable and sustainable product that can absorb energy from high impact, are impervious to marine borers and are non-polluting because our products do not need to be chemically-treated, therefore do not leach chemicals into the water that can be harmful to marine life.
As a fender material, SeaPile® and SeaTimber® offer a low friction coefficient. When barges, vessels and boats rub up against this product, it is easily deflected without causing damage to the vessel or the product, whereas with traditional wood and metal, dents, splintering and breakage can occur with heavy impact over time.
