Downhole Drilling Tools
The oil and gas industry operates in harsh environmental conditions. As oil and gas wells go deeper and demand for quicker extraction grows, the importance of leak-free electrical cables and sensor enclosures grows. Plastics offer the best choice for downhole drilling applications.
High-performance polyether ether ketone (PEEK) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) thermoplastics offer durable, reliable sealing solutions. Both of these materials provide outstanding wear, electrical, water and chemical resistance properties for the various parts, seals, rings and gaskets used in downhole drilling tools. Unlike metal, PEEK and PTFE retain their physical properties despite the high pressure, extreme temperatures and corrosive water and chemicals involved in downhole drilling.
