Oil & gas applications
Oil & Gas applications require a new set of materials. Pressures are higher, temperatures can vary from very low to extremely high and the chemical resistance can be extremely demanding. With proud we say that we can handle a great deal of the above!
High tech elastomers, high performance thermoplastics and top edge metal seals can cover most of the requirements of your oil & gas applications. Depending on your application you can choose out of high tech elastomer e.g. HNBR, FMVQ, FKM or FFKM elastomers. Or for harder materials like our high performance plastics PEEK and Vespel. Or for our metal seals if temperature and chemical resistance stays an issue.
