Ultra-low density high performance syntactic foams

Balmoral ultra low density syntactic foam

Meeting the need for improved performance on subsea equipment at extreme depths Balmoral has introduced a range of ultra-low density syntactic foam grades.

These are typically used on ROV/AUV/HOVs but are suitable for other deepwater applications including submarine trim adjustment, oceanographic vehicles, suspended instrumentation, large buoyancy modules and sonar domes.

For ROV/AUV purposes the materials are supplied either as slab-stock or customised buoyancy blocks.

The foams are designed to operate at depths of 2000-7000msw and boast ultra-low density, low manufacturing tolerance, excellent water ingress resistance, negligible long-term buoyancy loss and impressive mechanical properties including high bulk modulus and hydrostatic collapse pressure safety factors.
