Dow Corning to unveil new subsea thermal insulation technology at Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition

At the 2013 Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition, Dow Corning Corporation will launch Dow Corning XTI-1003 RTV Silicone Rubber Insulation, a solid, non-syntactic advanced thermal insulation solution for high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) equipment used in deepwater production infrastructure and tiebacks.

Extensive and ongoing tests to meet producer specifications and applicator requirements indicate improvements such as: simplicity for lower risk; application ease; increased joint strength; excellent flexibility; thermal stability; and anticipated gains in field performance, reliability and service life. Based on a room-temperature-curing (RTV) liquid silicone rubber (LSR) elastomer, the precisely engineered Dow Corning XTI-1003 RTV Silicone Rubber Insulation formulation is easy to mix and apply. It cures to a durable, flexible translucent rubber without potentially harmful by-products.

The Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition will focus on improving the quality, safety and economics of the subsea tieback industry. Known as a premier event for one of the fastest-growing sectors of the oil and gas industry, the conference is scheduled for March 5 through 7 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

In Booth 957, Dow Corning will feature the new Dow Corning XTI-1003 RTV Silicone Rubber Insulation along with a variety of  Dow Corning brand specialty silicones, Molykote brand Smart Lubrication solutions, Dow Corning brand engineered elastomers and Dow Corning brand severe-duty sealants for use in oil and gas applications.
