FluoroTechnology plays an important role in the oil and gas industry, providing reliable equipment to help improve the safety and affordability of oil-field and pipeline operations.
Resisting extreme heat and chemicals, fluoroelastomers improve the reliability and safety of fuel system seals and hoses, O-rings and downhole and field equipment gaskets.
Fluoropolymers provide acid-resistant piping for crude oil transfer, improving safety of oil-field and oil-pipeline operations.
FluoroTechnology also contributes to the firefighting foams used to enhance the safety of oil refining.
The use of FluoroTechnology in the oil and gas industry supports more than 7,000 jobs in the U.S. and more than 9,000 jobs in Europe. Globally, FluoroTechnology materials and products specific to the oil and gas industry generate a total of $20.6 billion in economic output.1
