Oil & Gas:
A summary of the products and services available to the oil and gas industry from Precision Polymer Engineering.
PPE has developed the EnDura range of elastomer materials to provide valve sealing components that can withstand harsh conditions experienced in critical ball valves.
We take a look at the causes of Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) in elastomer seals, and why it's important to take every precaution to minimise the risk of it occurring.
A behind-the-scenes look at how high performance O-rings, used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment, are made at Precision Polymer Engineering.
This video explains how elastomer seals are affected by plasma exposure in semiconductor device manufacturing processes. It shows the three main factors that determine the performance of an elastomer seal in plasma environments.
This video addresses the failure mode of thermal expansion encountered by elastomer seals used in high temperature applications. It explains what thermal expansion is, why it happens and how to avoid it.
Elastomer O-rings are one of the main uncontrolled gas sources in a sealed vacuum system. In this short animation you will learn what outgassing is and how to avoid it in your Semiconductor application.
