& Gas Market

Mining, oil, and gas is a vital industry that fuels our planet. Plastics are an integral part of the extraction, transmission, and processing of metals, oil, and natural gas due to their superior ability to perform in challenging environments.

The plastic materials commonly used in mining, oil, and gas include:

  • High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  • PVDF
  • PEEK
  • PPS

Applications that use high-performance materials include:

  • Sheaves (lightweight)
  • Pipe liners
  • Seals
  • Pump components
  • Saddles
  • Wrapping
  • Blast Pipe for mining
  • Wear parts (abrasion resistance)

Advantages of Plastics

  • High-temperature Use

  • Chemical Resistant

  • Lightweight

  • Excellent permeability properties

  • Rigidity or flexibility when needed

Custom Tool Design
