Trelleborg Customised Polymer Solutions for the Defence Industry
Trelleborg is a specialist in engineered polymer solutions and can seal, damp and protect essential applications within adverse conditions.
We offer customised solutions to fulfil client requests and support projects using proven defence materials and technologies.
Anti-vibration and shock mountings
Trelleborg’s range of multi-directional snubbing (MDS) engine isolators are specially designed to take high-dynamic shock loads while limiting movement in all directions.
Its two-part single bolt installation makes the MDS simple to mount and Trelleborg’s elastomeric bearings create no sliding surfaces, removing the need for lubrication.
Hose systems for road and flexible tankers
Trelleborg’s Volukler™ and Voludec™ hoses are designed for road and flexible tankers for controlled fuel delivery. They are lightweight and flexible with a high-abrasion resistance.
Available for suction and discharge of petroleum products for road or rail tankers, the robust and strong Pumpadukt™ and Trellflex hoses have a smooth inner tube.
Lightweight syntactic composite materials
Trelleborg provides a wide range of innovative vehicle protection solutions, including the cushioning and impact-absorbing CONFOR® safety foam.
Our flame and smoke-retardant formulations feature varied combinations of densities, strength, stiffness, failure strain and energy of fracture properties, as well as ballistic protection panels.
Passive fire protection for defence structures and equipment
Protecting people, structures and equipment from all types of fire in this extreme environment is essential for ensuring on-board safety.
Trelleborg’s certified rubber-based passive fire protection technology protects structures from chemicals, fire and corrosion. The dampening, noise-reducing, flexible nature of Firestop™ protects equipment from vibrations, collisions and explosions. Firestop™ material is used in Viking Protector™, FireNut™ and other tailored solutions.
Containment and dry storage systems
For more than 40 years, Trelleborg has been producing an extensive range of heavy-duty, rubber-coated textile, polyurethane (PU), thermoplastic urethane (TPU) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) fabrications for flexible bladder tanks, which can be adapted for the storage and distribution of fuels, resins, water, slurries and a wide range of other liquids.
Trelleborg’s dry storage system can be used to protect a multitude of high-value assets, including military hardware, ammunition, emergency equipment such as generators, pumps and compressors. This enables assets to be decentralised and stored where they will be required, resulting in rapid deployment when needed.
