Polycore liners have successfully proven the use of thermoplastic liners in down-hole applications since 1992. These liners:
- • Drastically reduce operating costs associated with rod-on-tubing wear and tubing corrosion failures
- • Alleviate wear and corrosion failures in beam-pumped and progressive cavity pumped wells through the use of proprietary lubricants
- • Eliminate additional costs for slim hole rod boxes or rod guides in highly deviated and dog-legged wells
- • Control tubular corrosion in other artificially lifted wells and disposal wells
Many operators report decreased pressure drops and electrical cost savings and increased production due to fundamental hydraulic benefits of the Polycore liner’s extremely smooth surface. With proven resistance to wireline, acid, and chemical damage, a unique mechanical bonding capability allows reuse of used and lower quality tubing saving on steel costs. Due to the bonding procedure used with Polycore liners, pipe with surface imperfections may be lined over damaged and existing internal plastic coatings without the additional cost of removal. The Polycore connection system is the most reliable and easiest lining to install in the OCTG corrosion control industry.
Polycore High Density Polyethylene Liner
Polycore™ is a High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) liner. This patented product is highly abrasion resistant and successfully mitigates rod on tubing wear, wireline, mechanical, and handling damage. HDPE is chemically inert to corrosive materials enhancing its use as a corrosion barrier. The mechanically-bonded seamless thermoplastic tube tolerates minor pipe surface imperfections and eliminates concerns with holidays or voids as in adhesive or thermally bonded liners and coatings. Maximum Temperature 71° C (160° F) Oil, 82° C (180° F) Aqueous.

Enertube Polyolefin Liner
Enertube™, a liner manufactured from a specially formulated blend of polyolefins, provides a moderate increase in tensile strength and temperature resistance over the field-proven Polycore. This second generation of liners is specifically designed to operate in wells too hot for Polycore™ and as a seamless mechanically bonded liner, provides a smooth tubing surface. Maximum Temperature 99° C (210° F) in all services.
Higher Temperature Water Wells
Ultratube Engineering Thermoplastic Liner
Ultratube™ is a high-performance liner manufactured from a proprietarily blended polyphenylene sulfide thermoplastic resin specially formulated for use in down-hole oil and gas production environments. This third generation liner provides a significant increase in temperature stability, tensile strength, abrasion and chemical resistance over the other proven liners. The innovative polymers in the Ultratube™ offer the broadest range of resistance to solvents, steam, strong bases, fuel, and acids. These new polymers limit (not prevent) the permeability of acid gases such as CO2 and H2S. Maximum Temperature 175° C (350° F) in all services.
