Achieving a reliable seal in extremely harsh environment of high temperature high pressure (HPHT) and corrosive fluids has been highly demanded in various industries, including oil and gas, aerospace, chemicals, and nuclear, etc. Traditional seal materials such as rubber or plastic materials often fail to achieve the reliable seal due to thermal degradation under hot, wet, and corrosive condition. Metal-metal seal also shows limited success due to low elasticity and weak acid corrosion resistance at HT. This paper presents a novel carbon-based nanocomposite that exhibits temperature rating over 1000°F and mechanical strength up to 15 KSI, filling technical gap of sealing material over 600 °F in corrosive environment. The composition-microstructure-property relationship and superior seal performance of this novel nanocomposite will be discussed.
