MZ Grade Microsphere Syntactic Foam

PREMIUM PERFORMANCE
MZ Grade premium syntactic foams safety operate in the Mesopelagic Zone, at depths ranging from the surface down to 1 000 meters. Fabricated with advanced microsphere technology, these homogenous materials offer both low density and lower cost considerations. Standard products range in density from 24 – 38 lbs/ft³, but may be tailored to lower density if required.

INDUSTRY APPLICATIONS
These workhorse foams have been thoroughly tested and have a proven track record. MZ Grade foams are safe, reliable, cost-effective buoyancy for the relatively shallow requirements of oceanographic applications such as mammal tags for whale tracking.

PROUDUCT AVAILABILITY
MZ Grade syntactic foams are available in block form and may be readily used for customer assembly or cut to fit application requirements. Blocks or trimmed parts may also be bonded together to form larger structures. Standard block sizes are 6” x 12” x 12” or 6” x 12” x 24”. Custom sizes and shapes are available upon request.
