Nameplates for Subsea Equipment

Aquasign

Aquasign is a unique exuding silicone-based material that will ensure provide long term visibility through a guaranteed anti-fouling performance of 60 years. Our Shield range encases the silicone markers within a robust polycarbonate frame. Any type of font/character is created and moulded into the material, leaving a flush surface.

Polycarbonate is utilised to provide an extremely tough and durable solution, offering protection from accidental ROV, diver or jet washing damage. The frame design has been independently pressure-tested to 700bar (10150psi) without any noticeable deterioration.

Typical manufacturing lead time: three to four days

Aquajet

Carbon steel plates with bridged text straight through using waterjet cutting. The plates are then shot blasted and coated in accordance with the appropriate specification to provide sufficient corrosion and anti-fouling protection. Guarantee for the long-term performance of the coating, this would be based on manufacturers’ standards.

Generally, Aquajet plates are supplied coated yellow complete with black HDPE backing plates and screws.

Typical manufacturing lead time: four to six weeks (depending on coating specification)
