Balmoral SolGuard® UV protection coating

The vast majority of offshore elastomer products are used subsea where UV degradation is not an issue.

However, a limited number of moulded products are deployed above the surface and by far the most critical in terms of performance and consequences of failure are bend stiffeners.

To overcome this issue, Balmoral developed its unique SolGuard UV protection system which effectively creates an overcoat layer preventing UV penetration through to the underlying bend stiffener.
