Why custom moulded rubber seals are a slick choice for oil & gas applications

Oil and gas applications often require a more heavy-duty sealing solution than your typical off-the-shelf seal can offer. In the face of challenging operational environments, comprising the handling of abrasive media in explosive atmospheres, oil and gas producers need to have total faith in the performance, safety and reliability of their rubber seals. 

TRP Polymer Solutions combines decades’ worth of experience and market-leading technical expertise to deliver cost-effective custom moulded rubber seals that deliver both performance and peace of mind. In this article, we explore the features and benefits of our custom moulded rubber solutions for the oil and gas industry, including high-performance FFKM rubber seals. 

Custom moulded rubber seals for oil and gas applications

TRP Polymer Solutions has many years of experience in the design, development and manufacture of custom moulded rubber seals for a wide range of industries, including the oil and gas sector. We combine high-performance oil and gas rubber products and state-of-the-art processing techniques to deliver optimal custom moulded rubber solutions that are guaranteed to boost the productivity and uptime of your applications.

Precision engineered for downhole conditions, our oil and gas rubber seals provide industry-leading chemical resistance to sour gas and other fluids, not to mention rapid gas decompression (RGD) resistance. All of which means that you can rely on custom moulded rubber products from TRP Polymer Solutions to deliver leak-free performance with minimal maintenance requirements and an extended service life.

Superior FFKM rubber seals

TRP Polymer Solutions offers a range of sealing solutions, including ‘O’ rings , packers and waterstop seals for pipe lines. Our innovative materials – such as Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM), HNBR and Aflas – are independently tested and certified to Norsok M-710 standards. FFKM is a common choice for seals destined for oil and gas applications. This is thanks to the Carbon-Fluorine makeup that gives FFKM its characteristic chemical and thermal resistance. 

FFKM rubber seals combine the sealing force, resistance and recovery characteristics of FKM with the chemical resistance of PTFE. As such, they provide a durable, reliable and high-performance sealing solution for mission critical oil and gas applications. Manufactured to ISO9001 standards, our FFKM rubber seals are suitable for explosive decompression, are self-extinguishing and non-flammable in air, and deliver excellent gas and liquid permeation resistance.
