AURORA PLASTICS APPLICATIONS

Umbilicals

Aurora Plastics offers a variety of products for umbilicals used in demanding subsea electric and gas applications. Used to transport natural resources to oil rigs, umbilicals require the utmost durability in harsh environments. Our product line includes  AuroraTec™ and AuroraGuard™ rigid PVCs and AuroraFlex™ flexible compounds.

AuroraTec™ rigid PVC compounds are highly versatile. They can be used as stand-alone compounds or as structural substrates, along with capstock, in two-part systems. Either way, these compounds provide a wide processing window and demonstrate resistance to electrical failure far surpassing metal conduits under similar conditions of heat exposure due to their lower thermal conductivity. Designed for the extrusion process, they are available in pellet or powder form in a wide range of colors.

AuroraGuard™ compounds offer many of the same performance and processing benefits of AuroraTec™, but also provide high-heat, low-smoke zero-halogen and flame-retardant properties, making them ideal for electrical applications.

Unlike rigid PVC, AuroraFlex™ SBS and SEBS compounds utilize multiple TPE/TPR chemistries to impart high-performance properties for durability and easy processing. TPE options are available as low as 10A* up to 50D durometer hardness. Some of our TPEs are offered in clear, as well as oil free grades.

Our R&D experts will work with you to find the right formulation for your umbilical application requirements.

* NOTE: Durometer hardness is measured with a calibrated durometer using the Shore Type-A scale in a room of consistent temperature. The indenter is inserted for 15 seconds to determine if it passes the ASTM D2240-Durometer Hardness test for the desired durometer.
