Like many others who had planned to attend CAMX 2017 this year, our thoughts are primarily with those affected by Hurricane Irma. The decision by the show organizers to cancel the event was not an easy one, but it was the right one. (In fact, our sister company, CMT Materials, also had a conference in Orlando cancelled during the same week.)

Tough. Durable. Low coefficient of thermal expansion. ESS-TOOL™ delivers all of the properties expected from high performance, intermediate temperature tooling board plus enhancements to cut machining time in half and increase ramp down curing rates at 2X or more as compared to today’s industry standards.
Engineered Syntactic Systems (ESS), a global supplier of high-performance syntactic solutions for buoyancy, insulation and composites markets, is pleased to announce the achievement of the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems Standard Certification.
While polymer systems, including epoxy and polyester resins came a long way very quickly, it was the introduction of hollow glass spheres that proved to be a game changer in the industry.
ESS has been named to the MTR100 list of leading subsea companies. Marine Technology Reporter is a premier industry publication serving the global Marine Technology Market.
We are often asked how and why the syntactic foam industry seemed to emerge from one particular region of the US. Many of the true pioneers in the field started in the Northeast US and planted the technological and business seeds that gave rise to a unique material.
In the 3rd and final installment of our series on acoustic impedance properties of syntactic foam, we present data on enhanced density products. We also discuss additional observations from test results including the effect of additives.
In the second part of our 3-part series, we delve in some comparative data illustrating the properties of different grades of syntactic foam. The formulations were designed for specific depths using different resin systems & glass bubbles, so we expected to see some significant differences.
One of the great things about syntactic foam is that one can make an almost infinite amount of changes to the types and levels of the constituent materials in order to impart particular properties to the final part.
With the recent ban on transporting lithium-ion batteries as cargo in passenger planes, regulators and industry are exploring novel ways to contain thermal runaway conditions. Syntactic foams offer potential due to their critical material properties.
