Brands

Because of our extensive expertise in material development, we have created a library of custom blends. These unique materials provide distinctive characteristics to meet specific requirements for the products we manufacture. If your component needs something that doesn’t come off the shelf, contact us today.

XPC™ Compounds

We offer an outstanding line of continuous-carbon filament-wound composites for use in pumps, valves, and compressor components. XPC has a thermal expansion coefficient close to that of metal. This characteristic allows a designer to replace metal parts, without any change in dimensions. Its low friction factor and good wear resistance results in excellent tribological properties.

It is primarily used in rotating equipment such as gear boxes, centrifugal pumps, blenders/mixers, compressors, and screw pumps.

Features include:

  • Superior chemical resistance
  • Excellent shock resistance (mechanical and thermal)
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Retention of mechanical properties at high temperatures
  • Increased reliability offering increased MTBF
  • Continuous service temperatures up to 600°F (315°C)
  • Reduced galling and seizing
  • Improves the efficiency of centrifugal pumps by reducing running clearances
  • Suitable for machining and grinding

Permeon®

Porous PTFE for ventilation and breathable air systems

Permeon® is a unique polymeric material which is naturally hydrophobic: it allows gases to pass through but blocks the passage of polar liquids. It can be rigid or flexible, installed in any position, and encapsulated.  Permeon® also has a uniform and controlled porosity and a wide range of temperature uses.

Sintermesh®

PTFE impregnated wire mesh for superior anti-extrusion

Patented Sintermesh® material was specifically designed for oilfield applications. Today it is used in a variety of industries. It is an impregnated wire mesh that can be manufactured with a variety of compounds depending on the requirements. It is often used in packing sets, downhole packers, and bearings. It can also be molded into elastomeric components as an anti-extrusion reinforcement.

Service applications include:

  • -300°F to +650°F
  • High-pressure
  • Large extrusion gaps

dures®

Polymers for pump applications

The dures® brand of materials are proprietary thermoplastic polymer composites developed specifically for the manufacture of bushings, bearings, shaft sleeves and wear rings in pumps handling a wide range of liquids including those that contain solid matter. dures provides outstanding chemical, thermal shock and impact resistance, with a temperature range from 150˚F up to 550˚F. dures materials provide a far better wear performance than many other materials such as rubber or bronze.

The dures range of materials enables pump operators to set much tighter clearances, improving reliability, enhancing efficiency and savings in life cycle costs.

Benefits include:

  • Outstanding performance
  • Durable wear characteristics
  • Excellent abrasive resistance
  • Dry run capability
  • Superior vibration dampening with negligible hydrolysis or swell
