Thermal Insulation

Thermal Insulation
Vikotherm™ R2 is Trelleborg’s commitment to helping you ensure optimal high pressure and high temperature flow performance.

Due to the possible risk of clogging of subsea oil and gas piping, thermal insulation is both necessary and recommended, especially for subsea activities. The requirement for thermal insulation is generally governed by the temperature of the oil / gas and the distance from the subsea well to the platform or FPSO. The solution must be watertight, and able to withstand the very high hydrostatic pressures at the seabed, as well as being impact resistant and provide a long service life.
Vikotherm™ R2, a rubber based subsea thermal insulation, has 30 years of experience built in. The system combines flexibility and robustness and gives protection for the lifespan of subsea installations. Our state of the art technology is designed to perform in extreme environments.

The three layer coating system provides HISC / corrosion protection and excellent thermal insulation properties. The system is seawater, impact and creep resistant.
