Subsea Buoyancy Foam

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Description

LAST-A-FOAM® R-3312 and R-3318 are machinable, hydrostatic 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 to provide buoyancy.
