Long last plastics for Topside Equipment

Oil & Gas production in offshore environments puts materials under some of the most demanding conditions found on the planet. These often include intense UV radiation, corrosive salt water and abrasive sand (winds), not to mention the extreme thermal conditions found in both arctic and tropical environments. Yet all environments require the safe and efficient operation of equipment every time. Our wide material range meets these requirements and more, no matter where the equipment operates. Our grades are weather resistant; to intense UV conditions and wear from sand and splash zone applications. Compared to steel, our materials do not require the need for sacrificial cathodic protection and offer weight savings of up to 70%! This leads to a reduction on the loads of the secondary support structures and can lead to an increase in operational efficiency. This combination allows you the construction of longlasting equipment and offers significant efficiency and economic advantages, no matter your application.
