Oil & Gas

(LINK TO GITIS TECHNOLOGY GUIDE) Over the years high performance elastomeric solutions have evolved to support the hostile conditions and longer life expectations in both upstream and downstream environments.

Designed to withstand extreme service temperature ranges and contact with harsh chemicals, oils and fluids, high performance elastomers can be found in everything from subsea trees, well heads to piping and chemical processing plants.

Elastomeric materials are also generally quite sensitive to the oil and gas components resulting in extensive swelling, chemical degradation, rapid gas decompression by CO2 and post curing by H2S.

O-Rings and rubber seals need to demonstrate high life expectancy and integrity due to major risk of damages as well as extended trouble-free operation.
