Thermoplastic Syntactic Foam
Specialty Subsea Applications
The impressive mechanical properties of ESS syntactic materials provide strength and durability at a significantly lower weight per volume than most traditional materials. In addition, exceptional thermal protection and resistance to water absorption make syntactic foam the ideal solution for many Subsea and Oceanographic specialty applications
Damage Shield – XTB is a low-density thermoplastic syntactic material specifically formulated to provide extremely high toughness while still providing buoyancy in deep-water applications. Used in applications normally suited for solid polymers or composites, Damage Shield – XTB offers both impact resistance and lift.
Providing more than 5 times the lift than traditional materials, Damage Shield – XTB is ideally suited for high abuse areas such as bumpers, impact pads or structural supports for AUVs and ROVs.
