Dow Corning has outlined effective solutions that meet the requirements of oil and gas manufacturers.
Such manufacturers look for environmental and operational safety to minimize maintenance, remove downtime and prevent losses. In addition, they explore options to raise output, increase equipment reliability and extend service lifetime.
Hence, oil and gas producers need proven, effective solutions to face challenges in dusty oilfields, salty offshore platforms, safety-critical areas or high-pressure pipelines. The severe-duty sealants and specialty lubricants from Dow Corning help solve complex issues associated with exploration, removal, delivery, storage and development of oil and gas products.
Molykote brand advanced lubricant formulations can be used to decrease fretting corrosion and enhance reliability. Additionally, friction and wear control and extension of lubrication intervals can be done. The brand includes anti-friction coatings, severe-duty greases, silicone greases and oils, and anti-seize pastes. Dow Corning’s severe-duty silicone sealants include hot-melt assembly adhesives, pastes, form-in place gasketing materials, and coatings.
