Boosting the performance of downhole equipment and ensuring operational asset integrity

VICTREX PEEK solutions perform in hot and
highly-corrosive conditions

Rely on a proven track record in the most extreme environments when working with Victrex

Stable performance in temperatures ranging from -196°C (-321°F) up to 260°C (500°F) with the capability of withstanding pressures up to 207 MPa (30,000 psi)
Double the lifetime of multi-material sealing assemblies with PEEK thermoplastic solutions that can handle extreme pressures and wear
At 220°C (428°F) and 4.5 MPa (650 psi), VICTREX PEEK 450G retained 100% of tensile strength in seawater, 100% of tensile strength in aromatic NORSOK hydrocarbon fluid, and more than 75% of tensile strength in 100% H2S gas

Increase tool utilization and reduce downtime

Manufacture downhole tools that are stronger and work longer by collaborating with Victrex and taking advantage of our PEEK expertise

108% less volume loss than steel in 24 meters/second jet sand slurry; less than 15 microns of abrasion damage as a liner in a highly-deviated rod pumped well with no rod guides

100% greater pressure handling capabilities, 300x better creep resistance, and 18x higher compressive strength compared to PTFE at elevated temperatures and pressures
No electrical leakage in tool enclosures and electrical connectors enabled by a fully-integrated, robust assembly that eliminates cracking and leaking to ground

VICTREX PEEK meets stringent specifications and is
backed up by documentation

Victrex certifies each material to oil and gas specifications and maintains historical data for full traceability

50 quality control tests are completed on each batch thus ensuring consistent product properties for critical components
Victrex takes pride in steadily manufacturing products to meet oil and gas specifications including ISO:9001, ISO:13845, and NORSOK standards among many others
Customers can rely on more than 35 years of PEEK polymer product and application development support to help them overcome the toughest challenges
