The solution for subsea buoyancy applications

High Performance,
Low-Density Syntactic Material

Our specialist low-density syntactic materials with densities ranging from 385 – 650 kg/m3 are designed and qualified for use in seawater depths of down to 11,500 metres.

Comprising high-grade hollow glass microspheres (HGMS) and a novel thermoset polymer matrix, our syntactic materials are formulated to produce ultra-high strength-to-weight materials with excellent water ingress resistance. This makes them the ideal solution for deep sea applications such as remotely operated vehicles (ROV), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and human-operated vehicles (HOV)
