The article reports that the company Dow Hyperlast has introduced a comprehensive line of subsea pipeline-insulation and field-joint systems for use in water depths of up to 10,000 feet. The systems incorporate polymer and glass syntactic materials with polyurethane elastomers. The company said its latest systems differ from the previous formulations in that no mercury catalyst is used, allowing environmental concerns about these materials to be met.
