Eccofloat® is a low density syntactic foam used for building manned and remotely operated vehicles.
Trelleborg produces various grades of syntactic foams to meet a broad range of requirements.
EL Grade epoxy syntactic foams have been the materials of choice for manufacturing manned and unmanned submersibles for years with their range of densities and ability to withstand exposure to diesel fuels and hydraulic fluids.
TG Grade syntactic foams are lightweight and economical for building manned and remote operating vehicles. The foams have also been used to manufacture mine neutralization systems because of their zero magnetic and sea water comparable acoustic signatures and to fabricate eyebrows for 688-class US nuclear submarines because of their buoyancy, acoustic profile and ability to significantly improve sonar functions.
DS Grade syntactic foams combine lightweight glass Microballoons with multi-functional epoxy resin to produce ultra-high strength-to-weight materials for high-performance, deep sea applications including unmanned and manned submersibles.
VF Grade epoxy syntactic foams combine microballoons and macrospheres for ultra-light weight applications such as filling of control surfaces on class 688 US nuclear submarines. The Grade A shock-qualified castable syntactic foams are sold as kits for on-site/field use.
