Subsea Buoyancy Foam

from 16.67
Price plus VAT, plus delivery

Subsea Buoyancy Foam for use on ROVsAUVs, and other marine robotics applications. This foam can be machined, glued, painted, and coated to build any size or shape of float that you want.

 

Description

LAST-A-FOAM® R-3312 and R-3318 are machinablehydrostatic pressure-resistant foams that provide buoyancy underwater. Their closed-cell structure is engineered to resist penetration by water. Due to their pressure resistance to many fluids and resins, they are also used in resin-transfer molding as a core material. LAST-A-FOAM® R-3312 and R-3318 semi-submersible foams are optimal for shallow to mid-water underwater robotics applications.

These subsea polyurethane foams support training operations for the International Space Station, providing buoyancy for assembly components in pools that simulate weightlessness.

Note, the 1.9 x 3.4 x 4.8 in block is used on the BlueROV2 (or the BlueROV2 by MDC) to provide buoyancy.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us at Marine Distribution & Consulting for all your buoyoncy needs!
