ADVANCED-ENGINEERED THERMOPLASTICS EXPERTISE

The oilfield industry requires parts that can withstand extreme environments. Greene, Tweed’s focus is on PEEK- and PTFE-derived materials that deliver excellent strength and chemical resistance at extreme operating temperatures and pressures. Used in electrical connectors, back-up rings, seal assemblies and more, they extend life and reduce maintenance in downhole applications.
