Keeps energy on tap
From traditional energy sources like oil and gas to emerging alternative energy solutions like solar and wind power, BASF polyurethanes enhance durability and reliability for greater output and longer asset life.
BASF polyurethane solutions for the oil and gas industry offer abrasion resistance, durability and insulation to withstand the extreme conditions found in the most inhospitable parts of the planet.
Cast and spray elastomers improve pipe corrosion and abrasion resistance. For deep water applications and unique glass sphere syntactic foam is capable of withstanding deep sea ocean pressure and higher oil temperatures while offering a very low K factor. Polyurethane elastomers for sub-sea pipe strakes, cable protection, bend restrictors, and bend stiffeners provide durability while resisting corrosion and abrasion.
Insulation and protection for offshore pipe insulation and floatation is completely mercury-free and provides excellent temperature and hydrolysis resistance with very low water absorption. In fact, BASF polyurethane has been used at depths of 9,627 feet—the deepest sub-sea insulated flowline installed in the world to date.
