Epoxy and Phenolic Systems for Oil and Gas Composites

Oil and gas recovery from more and more remote locations, including offshore, requires original thinking and new methodologies. Tough, versatile composite materials are becoming more and more useful for applications such as critical flexible pipe, cable and vessels subjected to extremely high temperatures and pressures, and downhole solutions for tooling. Benefits of Hexion resins for composites include:

  • Highly resistant to corrosion
  • High-temperature-capable
  • Lightweight
  • Very strong
  • Suitable for a broad range of service conditions, including marine
  • Lightweight
