Enhanced oil recovery techniques place more strain on seals, O-rings and gaskets than traditional recovery techniques. Components are routinely exposed to steam, high pressures and temperatures of 250°C and beyond.
Since it is critical that seals remain reliable to prevent leaks in HPHT environments, high-performance resins are required to limit expensive maintenance, downtime and overtime. The latest AFLAS FFKM resins exceed the performance of FKM and HNBR elastomers. These resins are supplied in raw material form, which provides design flexibility to meet complex application standards. They are peroxide cured and offer a low compression set at room and high temperatures.
