Ticona Engineering Polymers
8040 Dixie Hwy.
Florence, KY, 41042

Press release date: October 4, 2012

Ticona Engineering Polymers is showcasing its engineering polymers and composite prepregs for the most extreme and challenging oil and gas operating environments at the Society of Petroleum Engineers' Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE 2012) at Booth # 930 from Oct. 8 to 10 in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio.

The Ticona exhibit will highlight:

FortronŽ PPS for Pipe Liners and Flexible Composite Pipe Subject to Sour Gas and Corrosive Conditions

Fortron polyphenylene sulfide delivers performance in some of the most extreme and challenging environments. Harsh oilfield conditions can take their toll on the most resilient materials. Heat and corrosive elements like hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) pose a constant threat to oil and gas operations. In this hostile environment, Fortron PPS can minimize costly maintenance and repair. As a liner, it can greatly prolong the life of steel and offers many cost-effective advantages as an overall metal replacement.

Successful high performance products based on Fortron PPS polymers are extensively used in a broad spectrum of applications in various industries, including oil and gas, automotive, industrial, electrical/electronic/semiconductor, and technical fibers and filters, which require key high performance material characteristics:

ˇ High temperature resistance
ˇ Chemical resistance
ˇ Low permeation properties
ˇ Dimensional stability
ˇ High strength and modulus
ˇ Wear resistance
ˇ Corrosion resistance
ˇ Flame resistance
ˇ Hydrolytic stability

CelstranŽ CFR-TP Composites for Robust Piping Systems and Lightweighting Applications Celstran continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites are available as unidirectional (UD) tapes, which can increase the in line burst and operating pressures of thermoplastic pipe when wound around and joined to piping systems for reinforcement, or as continuous rods, shapes and profiles that can replace steel tensile members in ropes and cabling applications both on- and off-shore. Celstran CFR-TP (continuous fiber composites) offer:

ˇ Low weight with high stiffness and toughness
ˇ Excellent impregnation technology for high performance mechanical and thermal properties
ˇ Excellent dimensional stability
ˇ Superior chemical and corrosion resistance

Celstran CFR-TP UD tape can be used in on-shore and off-shore piping systems, including, including service lines, risers and umbilicals. These composite pipes are lightweight, flexible, durable and spoolable, allowing for fast installation speeds up to 500 meters an hour.
