Transportation of crude and processed hydrocarbon products to and from refineries brings its own set of challenges. This includes thermal considerations, such as the need to suitably insulate the pipeline/tanks from the cryogenic (LNG) or high temperature (>120 °C) products being transported as well as to provide suitable corrosion and weather resistance. Our materials can help alleviate these challenges, due to the insulating nature of polymers. A number of our materials are suitable for prolonged use at cryogenic temperatures; with other grades suitable for high temperatures (+150 °C) and some even suitable for use up to +500 °C. This is coupled with polymers naturally low thermal conductivity, meaning they are excellent insulators. Corrosion protection of equipment and pipeline support structures, by replacing metallic components with thermoplastics and composites can also lead to increased part lifetimes.
Long-lasting: Resistant to corrosive salt water, oil, gas and resources
Low maintenance due to wear resistance and tribological properties
