Wetisokote (5LPP Syntactic) - deep water

Five layer polypropylene thermal insulation coating system

Wetisokote® is a Polypropylene based Syntactic foam subsea insulation system designed for Flow Assurance.

System Description:

  • Layer 1,2,3: 3-layer Anticorrosion System - Fusion Bonded Epoxy, PP co-polymer Adhesive and Solid PP
  • Layer 4: Thermal Insulation- Glass Syntactic PP
  • Layer 5: Mechanical and UV Protective Layer-Solid PP

Superior Insulation Properties & Unmatched Mechanical Properties

  • Lower thermal conductivity results in lower achievable U values
  • The Polypropylene matrix provides high pressure resistance.
  • The hollow glass microspheres, guarantee the thermal insulation capabilities even at 3000 m water depths.
  • Extended cool-down time


  • Can be installed using all subsea laying methods including reeling, S-lay and J-lay.
  • Mechanically resilient product constructed from impact resistant ductile materials.
  • Extensively tested for tensioner clamp loads, axial shear loads and fatigue, giving excellent performance.

FJ Compatibility

  • Thermotite® IMPP
  • Nemo 1.1
  • Nemo 2.1
