KISS® is our patented standard fixing specification of Aquasign® subsea markers for epoxy coated as well as many plastic substrates – see our Substrate Guide for more details.
This two-part adhesive system utilizes a high-performance solvent-free adhesive tape, combined with our single component silicone sealant – Biohesive® 225.
By removing the requirement to apply adhesive to the back of the marker, KISS® significantly reduces installation times with its quick and efficient PEEL, STICK & SEAL method. Watch our Installation Video on the image carousel to the right!
Biohesive® 225 is an essential component in the installation process, as it creates a water-tight seal between the marker and the substrate. Our latest innovation of 8mm curved corners as part of our Registered Design, helps ensure a complete bond by allowing the adhesive bead to be easily smoothed to the marker edges.
Our self-adhesive subsea labels maintain the flexibility of the silicone Aquasign® marker, therefore is suitable for most applications including tubulars. For customers who require a mechanical solution, KISS® underwater markers can also be supplied with bolt holes and nylon washers.
Our lead time for Aquasign-KISS® underwater labels is as little as 2 working days!
The KISS® subsea marking system has shown excellent resistance to natural ageing (UV, weathering and salt mist) and offers adhesion over a wide temperate range (-40°C to 110°C).
KISS® has also undergone extensive third-party testing including Pressure, Vibration and Slam Loading. Technical Reports are available from within our Client Portal – click here to register.
