The search for novel materials has continued to dominate industries like automotive, power, aerospace and energy where maintaining a competitive edge is necessary for increasing industry market share. For subsea applications, where high pressures and temperatures are the norm, using reinforced composites have potential as the next generation solution. This presentation investigates the influence of micro/nano fillers on mechanical properties of lightweight polymeric materials employed in thermoplastic risers and hoses for subsea applications and the challenge of incorporating such novel materials for potential up-scaling. To obtain commercially viable microstructures, a two-step processing routes was selected and its influence on final polymer nanocomposite morphology has been studied.
