Trelleborg at the composites UK Awards

Trelleborg’s advanced engineering materials (AEM) operation, has taken home the prestigious Innovation in Composite Manufacture Award at this year’s UK Composites Industry Awards Dinner in Birmingham, UK. The company was awarded the accolade after identifying an untapped opportunity for composites in buoyancy within the subsea sector.

The buoyancy solution needed to be strong, light and able to withstand high pressures at considerable depths of 11,500 meters. As such, Trelleborg launched Project High Performance Low Density (HPLD), which involved the development, proving, manufacture and qualification of low density composites - or syntactic foam to be specific - capable of performing in high hydrostatic pressures and harsh subsea environments.
