Trelleborg manufactures a range of high performance, low density syntactic foam for deep sea buoyancy applications called Eccofloat®. These composite foams provide ultra-low densities by selecting only the highest specification hollow glass microspheres, called Eccospheres®, and combining them within a rigid, high strength resin system. The syntactic foam is typically cast into standard blocks.
Oceanographers also depend on syntactic foams to suspend instrumentation in deep ocean studies. For these applications, the syntactic foam is used in either block form or custom molded shapes for installation in manned and unmanned submersibles such as the legendary Alvin and Jason vehicles that were used to discover and explore the Titanic.
