Vikotherm® PT (Polypropylene Tape) is a high strength, thermally insulating syntactic polypropylene tape which is suitable for deep-sea application.
Vikotherm® PT is typically used by deep-sea flexible pipe manufacturers and is spirally wound onto the pipe as part of its construction, to maintain flow rates and reduce the possibility of wax and hydrate formations. It has an operating temperature of up to 90°C / 194°F and a tensile strength of 2.8 to 7.9 MPa.
Vikotherm® PT is manufactured with hollow glass microspheres to lower the thermal conductivity. The easy application of this material means that it can be applied in single or multiple layers depending on the required insulation levels, It can be wrapped in multiple layers around a mandrel at a high rate.
