Oil & Gas
No matter if deep-sea, offshore or land-based oil exploration, today, there are only a few polymers that can survive the harsh conditions in oil drilling, transport and processing. The wide range of 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers can operate in temperature ranges from - 200°C to + 260°C, provide outstanding chemical resistance, lowest permeation rates and are able to handle extensive pressure fluctuations where optimum performance is required.
With this profile fluoropolymers are THE reliable, long-lasting materials of choice for a wide range of challenging applications like seals and gaskets, wire line coating, packing, pipe, coating, blow out preventer, umbilical, expansion or loading swivel joints.
Typical applications for 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers in the oil & gas industry:
