Nuclear Submarine High Strength Gaskets
Our Durable, Yet Flexible High-Strength Gaskets for Critical Military Systems

When failure means millions of dollars worth of damage, how do you find a solution to your flawed components? Through composites-that’s how. As a major concern to the nuclear submarine fleet, these failing parts would degrade over time causing them to lose the standard needed to meet physical and dimensional requirements.

Globe Composite developed high-strength gaskets to replace fraying and underperforming missile tube muzzle hatch gaskets made with Buna-N. We formulated a liquid castable, high-strength material that was durable, yet flexible enough to conform to the hatch shape, while assuring a tight-fitting seal at various operating depths.

Developing A Recreational Diving Helmet
How Composites Saved Sub Sea Systems® an Estimated $1.5 Million Over 3 Years

Our client, Sub Sea Systems®, provides recreational diving systems to resorts and aquariums worldwide. for their Sea Trek® tours. This rapidly growing company needed a diving helmet solution that was able to function under submersible pressures, sustain the wear-and-tear of everyday use, and withstand environmental elements.

Prior to the development of a composite-based diving helmet, Sub Sea Systems® was using a handmade helmet that took 40 man-hours of labor to produce. Our cost-effective replacement to fiberglass has greater design flexibility, lowered shipping expense, and increased durability.
