Honeywell's high performance polyester fiber will be used for the first permanent synthetic mooring system in the Gulf of Mexico. Known as the 'Mad Dog' truss Spar, the installation, which is to occur this fall, will also signify the first use of polyester ropes for a Spar-based floating production system. Mad Dog will be moored in 4,420 ft. of deep water with an 11-line taut leg system in the U.S. Gulf's deep-water Green Canyon Block 826. Ropes involved will have a design minimum spliced breaking strength of 4,260 kips (1,932 tons); as per their manufacturer - Marlowe Ropes of the U.K. - they are the strongest ropes ever produced for deep-water mooring.

In a continuing effort to improve the quality of the products offered to the power generation industry, the Kalb Corporation has begun incorporating a newly-developed insulating material as standard in its HeatBlocker Ultra Performance Exhaust Insulation blankets. This insulating material will replace the previously used ceramic fiber mat as the primary heat-attenuating barrier. Composed of a breakthrough in materials technology, this calcium, magnesium, and silica composite will extend HeatBlocker's effective temperature range to 1,832º F. Combined with the extended thermal properties, a unique manufacturing process of spinning and needling the fabric will provide superior mechanical properties, significantly increasing tensile strength and abrasive resistance.

In December 1996, the IMO adopted amendments to the SOLAS convention in regards to fire safety measure for all vessels. According to Regulation 34, nearly all exposed and concealed surfaces must have low flame-spread characteristics of smoke and toxic products. Since then, tests for both characteristics have been standardized to Resolution A.653(16), and Resolution MSC.41(64), respectively. NoFire Technologies, based in Upper Saddle River, N.J., has developed a paint and coating - NoFire A-18 Marine Paint -that complies with these safety standards. Tested at Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas, the product exceeded requirements of both Resolution A.653(16) and Resolution MSC.41(64). In addition, NoFire A-18 Marine was granted Type Approval by the U.S. Coast Guard, ABS, DNV and Germanischer Lloyd - for use on all ships.
