Vikotherm® R3 is the next generation, high performance subsea thermal insulation material within Trelleborg's Vikotherm® range. Vikotherm® R3 is made from a unique blend of commercial rubbers, providing unlimited water depth capability and performance in high temperatures up to 180°C.
The material is flexible with excellent adhesion performance, providing durability when applied onto anti-corrosion coatings and bare metals, with an elongation of over 200%.
With minimal upfront engineering and design time, faster application rates, and simple site mobilization, Vikotherm® R3 is a competitive industry solution.
Vikotherm® R3 is ideal for customers requiring low heat loss, extended cool-down time, and rapid, flexible application using high levels of in-country content. Trelleborg ensures the design promotes stability and long term reliability of thermal insulation systems, which allows for the end-user to optimize production to decrease processing costs.
