NASNet®

A fundamental difference between NASNet® and conventional Long Baseline (LBL) systems is in NASNet®’s use of a broadcast, or one-way ranging technique which allows the use of passive receivers. This approach successfully overcomes the limitations of conventional LBL systems and provides a true multi-user system.

NASNet® combines its advanced signalling technology with a unique, patented, implementation to provide acoustic range measurements of up to 5,000m for seabed positioning and up to 10,000m for surface positioning. This allows any area to be covered by greatly reducing the number of units, thereby reducing vessel time needed to install and calibrate the seabed array. Read more…

Leading provider of offshore adhesives in Brazil

Are you looking for a provider of offshore adhesives in Brazil ? Aquasign are a leading supplier of offshore adhesives in Brazil and throughout South America.

Biohesive® 225 is a high performance Silicone RTV adhesive sealant for use with Aquasign’s anti-fouling subsea marker systems. It is a rapid curing adhesive, skinning within a few minutes and curing overnight, depending on the ambient conditions.

One of the major advantages offered by Biohesive® 225 is that it can be used in geographical locations with high temperatures (>30°C/85°F) and/or high humidity (75% +) without causing significant performance issues, although the skinning time will reduce. The adhesive becomes more viscous in cold conditions but is still useable so long as the temperature is above 2°C (36°F).

Biohesive® 225’s pasty consistency allows it to be used in vertical and overhead applications. In its cured state it is tough yet extremely flexible, allowing its use in applications where rigid adhesives would not be considered.

As a single component adhesive, it requires no mixing or metering of curatives, instead relying on atmospheric moisture to cure. This means that the application of Biohesive® 225 is very straightforward, using just a basic caulking gun (also known as a mastic or skeleton gun). Biohesive® 225 is supplied in a 310ml cartridge to match the most common size of caulking guns.
