Fluoropolymers for Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas exploration and recovery is probably the harshest of all applications for polymeric materials. The temperatures and pressures; the corrosive chemicals present and the operational life expected of such materials requires that only premium, high performance grades are used.

Our fluid handling/barrier products are used extensively in downhole operations (umbilicals) and our sealing components are widely utilised in ‘on and off-shore’ pipeline flange constructions.

Key component characteristics:

  • • Excellent aging; very little change in mechanical properties over time
  • • Environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR)
  • • Low surface energy; non-stick
  • • Low permeation
  • • Excellent chemical resistance
  • • Superior flexibility/ductility at very low temperatures
  • • Non-flammable
