Elastoshore® ZEROHg

Deep and ultra-deep water pipe insulation


Elastoshore® ZEROHg GSPU products are perfect for the wet insulation of ultra-deep flowlines and subsea structures. This mercury-free, high performance material is reliable under the extreme stress and temperatures of the deep sea. BASF Elastoshore is the record holder for the deepest use of GSPU at depths over 2900m.


Ensuring a stable mechanical bond and excellent thermal insulation, Elastoshore is suitable for deep and ultra-deep water pipes thanks to the wide variety of processing options it offers, its low viscosity that facilitates processing and handling and a thermal conductivity of 20% below conventional GSPU systems.


Elastoshore field joints ensure stable protection and insulation of pipeline welds. They offer excellent thermal insulation values and are corrosion resistant. Elastoshore filed joints are mercury free and specifically designed for the harsh environment of the deep sea.
