Exceptional Elastomer Materials
Our specialist range of EnDura® oilfield elastomers enable our material and engineering teams to specify an optimal solution for the unique demands of your sealing system.
Perlast® ICE offers a unique combination of excellent chemical resistance and low temperature performance. This perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) material has been specifically developed to perform under extreme conditions, in temperatures as low as -46°C (-51°F) or lower.
PPE has experience sealing in high temperature, high pressure environments, such as ultra-deep water HP/HT applications of 18,000 psi and 177°C (350°F) and above. We supply a wide range of products into various applications including down-hole tools, subsea equipment and infrastructure, pipeline connectors, valves, compressors and pumps.
Certified and Approved
PPE is a registered member of FPAL and the BVAA. PPE is a frequent technical contributor to the Energy Polymer Group and other global conferences focusing on oilfield polymers and sealing technology.

Products for Oil & Gas
Below is a selection of the most common products we supply to the oil & gas industry. Visit the Products page to see the full range.
Custom Rubber Seals
PPE designs and manufactures custom molded rubber parts and bespoke engineered components in infinite shapes and profiles to meet any sealing requirements.
With a specialist elastomer for every sealing application, our engineers can identify an elastomer O-ring to perform perfectly in your operating environment.
Also known as V-packing (vee packing), chevron stack sets are multi-lip packings which are especially suited to mechanically-challenging conditions.
Energized lip seals provide a versatile sealing system for uni-directional pressure applications in either static or reciprocating dynamic conditions, in rod or piston grooves.
For applications where large clearance gaps or bi-directional pressures are a factor, consider the effectiveness and strength of a PPE spring seal.
T-seals comprise of an elastomer T-shaped cross section and two backup rings, offering an excellent sealing solution for static or dynamic applications.
Wiper Seals - Scraper Seals
Wiper seals (scraper seals) provide a physical barrier to limit the ingress of moisture, dirt and other contaminants from piston rods used in hydraulic systems into the primary sealing system.
