LOW-DENSITY FOAM FOR SUBSEA APPLICATIONS
As the demand for subsea-related equipment continues to grow, so does the need for construction materials that suit various subsea requirements. Composite materials, like polyurethane foam, have proven to be cost-effective and advantageous for use in shallow and mid-water applications.
General Plastics supplies hydrostatic, pressure-resistant subsea foam for use in subsea mooring buoyancy, semi-submersible craft, pipeline flotation, underwater robotics, ROV/AUVs, and more. Uncoated, this closed-cell polyurethane foam has been tested to depths of 1,200 ft.
The product is resistant to saltwater and has been used in underwater pumps for offshore drilling rigs. Our LAST-A-FOAM® R-3300 semi-submersible series has been used in support of training operations for the International Space Station.
