Greene, Tweed’s ProTechna® technology utilizes thermoplastic and elastomeric solutions to provide a new level of protection for critical components such as antennas, electronics and sensors in extreme environments. ProTechna shields sensitive components thereby eliminating direct exposure to erosion, corrosion and abrasion resulting from downhole conditions. It also provides protection from extreme temperatures, pressures and harsh chemicals. This new technology provides the superior performance of filled and unfilled Arlon® grades of PEEK and PEK as well as the high-temperature and chemical resistant characteristics offered by both Chemraz® FFKM and FKM elastomers.
In addition to enhancing the reliability of electrical devices in harsh environments, Greene, Tweed’s ProTechna technology allows customers to integrate a variety of components including Greene, Tweed’s Seal-Connect® product line into one assembly, thus reducing the number of parts needed. This allows customers to design their tools using “plug & play” functionality for easy field redressing.
Greene, Tweed evaluates each customer’s application and uses its technical expertise in materials, engineering and design to partner with the customer to select the material that will provide the best level of protection and performance for integrated and critical components.
Note: Temperature, chemical resistance and pressure extremes, etc., will vary with each application requirement.
