Solvay Specialty Polymers’ KetaSpire KT-820 polyetheretherketone (PEEK) resin delivers strong chemical and abrasion resistance combined with heat resistance and strength. Parts based on KetaSpire PEEK are currently being used in a range of oil and gas applications including but not limited to bearings, seals, and backup rings. The resin meets NORSOK M-710 standards; KetaSpire-based PEEK shapes have proved superior in NORSOK M-710 (an internationally recognized set of testing systems originally developed by the Norwegian petroleum industry) sour single-phase aging tests at high hydrogen sulfide levels. The M-710 standard defines the requirements for critical nonmetallic (polymer) sealing, seat, and backup materials for permanent subsea applications. KetaSpire offers a maximum operating temperature of 240°C and exhibits high purity and consistent high quality in processing and part performance. Glass-fiber-reinforced and carbon-fiber-reinforced grades provide a wide range of performance options.
