Offshore Products

The knowledge and experience gained in the production of composed plastic materials and the laboratory extensive research, gives FLOATEX the capacity to fullfill the offshore industry requirements on special dedicated buoyancy materials.
Technique of resilient foam covered with a thick skin abrasion resistant elastomer, is widely utilised in the in-line production of fenders, bead floats, anchor pendant, pick-up and chain support buoys.
Rotationally moulded technology is utilised for the production of hinged type deepwater floats manufactured in accordance with the latest OCIMF specifications and recommendations as well as special modules for the dredging industry.

internal laboratory facility enables independent inspection agencies to witness the test certificates issued.
  • Pick-up buoys
  • Pennant Buoys
  • Modular buoys
    • GIANT BUOY EXA 48/56-40
  • Expanded Polyethylene Fenders
  • Cylindrical and supporting buoys
  • Chain buoys
  • Catamaran mooring buoy CAT 43/00


The scope of FLOATEX's interest in composed plastic materials, processing technology and application has been developed in a wider range of products for the oil pollution control systems such as oil boom barriers with fast boom deployment system.
  • TPR Oil booms
    TPR series Floatex oil booms, realised in standard length of 25,0 meters each with total height of 1,0 meter of which 0,3 m approx. freeboard and 0,7 m approx. immersed, are suitable for use as permanent oil boom in exposed areas.
  • Floating barrier reel type series PBAV
    The FLOATEX anti-pollution barriers of the PBAV series are designed for temporary open-sea installation in long continuous lines.

Aquaculture and aquafarming

Aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish, crustaceans, molluscs and aquatic plants.
Aquaculture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. Mariculture refers to aquaculture practised in marine environments.
  • Fish farming cages
    Floatex produces Fish farming cages since longtime. Floatex can produce cages with circular shape with very big diameters
  • Signalling system and moorings for cages
  • Polyethylene stanchions for aquaculture cages
  • Floats for shell fish farming
    Rotationally moulded polyethylene Floats for shell fish farmings are filled with closed cell expanded polyurethane or syntactic resin depending from deepwater use.
