VICTREX PEEK Polymer for Outstanding Performance and Long-Term Reliability
Increasing demands in the oil and gas industry are creating the need for systems to deliver improved reliability, to extend service life and enhance performance in higher temperatures and pressures, deeper environments and more abrasive and corrosive conditions. The need to minimize loss of containment due to failures and maintenance downtime are paramount placing added demands on materials.
Due to these mounting performance expectations the use of high performance plastics to replace metals and lower performing plastics in downhole and offshore applications is expanding and the development of high performance materials and advances in design and manufacturing methods is accelerating this trend.
Victrex high performance polymers are increasingly being chosen for a wide array of oil and gas applications to help improve operating performance and reduce the risk of downtime associated with component failure.
Metal Replacement Solution
As an alternative to metals, VICTREX® PEEK offers a lightweight, durable, cost-effective solution with wear, chemical and corrosion resistance even at elevated temperatures. It outperforms metals and other traditional materials due to its exceptional combination of properties that help create more reliable equipment for optimal oil and gas retrieval and energy production.

VICTREX PEEK Polymer for Composites
Composites made with VICTREX PEEK polymer can replace metals and thermoset composites in oil and gas applications such as flexible composite pipes, stack components, bearings, bushings and wear rings.
Composites made with VICTREX PEEK polymer offer exceptional strength, fatigue resistance and ductility for long life as well as abrasion, erosion and corrosion resistance for reduced maintenance. Additional benefits include weight reduction and part consolidation which translate into cost savings.

Developed to replace the corrosion-resistant alloys used to make pipes and lined piping systems for extraction and transportation in the oil and gas industries, VICTREX Pipes a new line of extruded pipes and tubing made with VICTREX PEEK polymer fully exploits the material's performance capabilities, including its ability to withstand harsh temperatures and corrosive conditions. The flexibility of the pipes means that they can potentially be used for umbilicals and similar applications.
Durable, lightweight VICTREX Pipes offer overall system cost reduction due to lower maintenance and reduced downtime. They are also potentially cost-effective compared to expensive CRAs (corrosion resistant alloys).
