PVC 40 is a flexible PVC U fendering profile designed to fit over a 6mm plain flange to provide protection to boats.
Manufactured in a UV stabilised, phthalate free, and 100% recyclable compound, our products are as kind to the environment as possible whilst delivering excellent in use performance.
Our non-marking PVC material provides the perfect alternative to rubber U fendering which is prone to leaching its colour on both your own boat as well as those around you.
This profile is manufactured in the softer 50 grade material to provide an easier product fit and mimics the feel of rubber.
Flange Thickness: 6mm

Product QuestionsQuestion by: John morgan on 19 Aug 2016 12:10:00We recommend that our ‘U’ profiles are fixed with self-tapping screws through the underside of the flange to provide a strong and reliable mechanical fixing.
If an adhesive is to be used we advise combining with a mechanical fixing to maximise longevity and security. We do not recommend a particular brand of adhesive but you should check with your stockist to ensure any adhesive is suitable for the PVC profile as well as the surface material that you are looking to bond to.
Please be aware if adhesive is used to fix the profile to the boat it may prove difficult to remove at a future date.
The Wilks TeamAnswer by: Wilks Team (Admin) on 2 Sep 2016 09:21:00Hello, I'm renovating an old dinghy, and need to replace the fendering all around the boat to protect the flange where the deck and hull join. The previous fendering seems to have been bent into shape and pushed on, fixed only at each end to the transom. Reading your fitting instructions, you recommend fixing the fendering in place with screws every 75-150mm, so I'm wondering whether I would be able to fix it in the same way as previously, or if I need to screw it. I've ordered a sample to see how flexible it is - can you let me know how long the sample is? I'd also be interested in your thoughts on whether you think having your fendering pushed on and secured only at the ends would be secure enough.
