Components crafted from VICTREX PEEK materials are particularly effective in the oil and gas industry due to the material's tolerances to high temperatures and corrosive environments.
In this industry, VICTREX PEEK is found as a primary seal, back-up ring or packing in applications as diverse as valves, pipelines, compressors, packers, manifolds and blowout preventers. Requirements such as high creep resistance at temperature, excellent chemical resistance and great wear resistance means that VICTREX PEEK is an ideal choice.
WHY THE OIL & GAS INDUSTRY CHOOSES VICTREX PEEK
