Composites meet high performance demands for unconventional drilling and formation evaluation applications

The future trends of the industry further amplify the need for PEEK-based composites in unconventional drilling and formation evaluation, where applications such as high-performance antennae and logging sleeves are found. Mechanical and hydraulic-actuated sleeves operate at high temperatures where PEEK-based composites have excellent performance and long life in use compared to thermosets.
