Lunch and Learn with Nylacast - Polymers for Subsea
22 January 2019
Venue: Subsea UK, 30 Abercrombie Court, Westhill, AB32 6FE
This event has concluded.
Delegates heard about using advanced polymers for subsea structures. Commonly featured on flexible pipelines, Nylacast polymers are also applied to structures where the low weight, non-corroding and natural bearing properties make them the supreme choice. Intervention valve interface buckets, rope fairleads, pipe-in-pipe spacers and downhole packers are just some examples of custom engineered products.
PA, HDPE, PTFE, POM-C, PEEK, PP: which to choose for strength, impact, self-lubrication? What about water absorption? How does the manufacturing process affect strength? Delegates learnt from the materials technology specialists, viewed some real life samples and discussed their project requirements and questions.
Headquartered in the UK, Nylacast has over 50 years of engineering and manufacturing know-how: directly manufacturing premium quality polyamide products. Its many innovations include custom formulations for low-weight, low-friction materials, subsea use, impact resistance, ATEX and many others industry requirements.
