Plastics are available that are 100 percent inert to corrosive chemicals across the entire pH range, enabling processors and equipment manufacturers alike to avoid corrosion and contamination, while significantly cutting cost, weight and maintenance.*

Materials used in applications in the chemical, oil and gas segments typically must meet very specific performance requirements. The right plastic can ensure a safe, durable, long-lasting performance even under the harshest conditions. Semi-crystalline materials that perform in conditions rated as “engineering” or “advanced engineering” are usually specified, as is flexible tubing for transfer and delivery needs. Resistance to chemicals, corrosion and heat are key attributes.
Plastics are used in many applications within chemical processing, including:
Air Exchange/Compressed Air
Bushings, Bearings, & Insulators
Chemical Containers, Scrubbers, & Distribution Boxes
