Onshore Pipeline Construction
Offshore Insulation and Specialty Elastomers
BASF materials provide excellent insulation for heat and cold protection applications in pipelines. In addition to thermal benefits, our polyurethane systems have a wide range of processability to suit various manufacturing methods including rotating spray continuous belt and traditional pipe-in-pipe procedures.
In additon to pipeline insulation, BASF Elastopor polyurethane systems can used in LNG applications including cryogenic pipe supports. Easily molded into many shapes and sizes, polyurethanes offer high compressive strengths and thermal performance even in extreme cyrogenic temperature environments.
