Trelleborg builds upon a vast history of expertise in polymer solutions to deliver cost-effective products that seal, damp and protect in the harshest environments. From structural bearing systems to floatover solutions, grout seals, corrosion protection and anti-vibration mounts, Trelleborg engineered products play a pivotal role in a number of applications.
Trelleborg delivers specially designed solutions for operation in arctic and cold climates that dampen impacts, noise, vibrations, and seal and protect against the harsh weather, ice conditions, abrasion and corrosion.
Customers can rely on Trelleborg engineered products to deliver innovative polymer solutions that significantly improve the quality, safety and efficiency of its customers’ operations.
Firestop is a certified rubber based passive fire protection technology that protects structures from exceeding critical temperature limits. The dampening, noise reducing flexible nature of Firestop™ protects equipment from vibrations, collisions, explosions and even earthquakes. It withstands a blast up to 2.1 bars and is jet fire resistant for more than 2 hours. Firestop™ is suitable for use in arctic and cold climate environments from -50°C.
The main purpose of Firestop™ as a passive fire protection material is to protect personnel and equipment by minimizing fire escalation. It provides time to evacuate people, close down critical equipment and for responders to gain control of the fire.
Trelleborg Offshore has supplied rubber for severe corrosion protection for more than 60 years. Rubber is chemically resistant to all corrosive agents commonly encountered in the offshore sector. Anywhere steel is exposed to corrosion, it can be protected with a rubber lining. Rubber has significant elasticity and strength, and wears extremely well in arctic and cold climates.
Typical rubber based corrosion protection applications include:
• Subsea structures, equipment and pipes, often in combination with thermal insulation
• Risers and structures in splash zones, often in combination with passive fire protection
• Topside structures and equipment
• Inside tanks and vessels
• HISC (Hydrogen Induced Stress Cracking) protection
