Products & Solutions

ESS materials and solutions are engineered to provide superior performance and long material life. They are available in a broad range of densities and can be purchased in a variety of standard or custom finishes, shapes and sizes. The full range of ESS materials are available as sheets and blocks which can be bonded and easily machined into almost any geometry.

ESS also offers finished products for traditional flotation applications as well as more complex made-to-order buoyancy solutions, composite/syntactic structures and assemblies for complete turnkey solutions. Read more about our products and solutions below. For information on syntactic foam applications in plastics, packaging and thermoform tooling, visit our sister site CMT Materials.

What is Syntactic Foam

Syntactic foam is a class of material created using pre-formed hollow spheres (commonly made of glass, ceramic, polymer or even metal) bound together with a polymer.

Insulation

Syntactic foams are intrinsically good insulators because of the extremely high loading of hollow glass spheres.
