High Performance Plastics
The oil and gas industry requires materials which are able to operate in extreme environments or with arduous operational parameters. Fluoropolymer (PTFE, MoldflonTM) materials manufactured by ElringKlinger are an ideal choice in many applications where elastomeric materials are unable to deliver sufficient long term stability and reliability.
Typical material characteristics:
- High thermal range (-260 °C to +260 °C, short-term to +300 °C)
- High pressure capability (30,000 psi)
- Low Friction
- High dynamic speed capability
- Dry running
- Universal chemical resistance
Other high performance materials including PEEK, PFA, PPS, PEI and polyethylene for example are also available for specific applications.
