As the industry faces dimensioning oil & gas reservoirs the petrol chemical companies are forced to drill farther offshore and into deeper waters.  This equates to confronting higher pressures, higher temperatures and increased corrosive environments.  Common applications in offshore environments are electrical connectors.  Electrical connectors are required to perform in aggressive environment while maintaining electrical performance.

Factors in Material Selection

  • Insulation properties under high voltage
  • Mechanical strength under high pressures
  • Creep resistance under high pressures
  • Corrosion resistance
  • NORSOK M710 and ISO 23936-1 compliance
  • High Heat (150ᴼC)

Typical Applications

  • Connectors
  • Electrical components

Common Materials Families (Food Grade)

  • PEEK
  • Modified PEEK
