Seals Eastern was one of the earliest companies to develop
downhole elastomer packer elements made using fluorocarbon
rubbers. Today, Seals Eastern is known for the quality and performance of its
HT/HP packer elements.
In the 1970s, Seals Eastern was a key partner in
packer elements, metal bonded seals, and o-rings using formulated Fluorel ® and Viton ®
temperature, high pressure ( HT/HP ) North Sea applications.
This same period witnessed the development of Seals Easterns
resistant rubber compounds for HT/HP.
In the early 1980s Seals Eastern pioneered packer elements
and other seals for
HT/HP sour completions using formulated Aflas ®. 7182 Brand formulated Aflas is known the world over for its
resistance to explosive decompression, ability to operate in excess of 200C, and its ability
to withstand high pH corrosion inhibitors.
In the 1990s Seals Eastern developed its line of HNBR (aka HSN) formulations for packer elements and seals. In the
Seals Eastern has pioneered packer elements made
using formulated Viton Extreme® (ETP) and continues to test and qualify
other high performance
polymers by Asahi Glass Fluoropolymers, Solvay Solexis, Dupont
Performance Elastomers, Dyneon (3M), and Zeon Chemicals. In fact, when you buy your oilfield
packer elements, bonded
seals, and o-rings from Seals Eastern, you will be buying
the best technology available for your specified class of
elastomer. To that end, we have invested well over a half million
dollars in analytical capability to ensure our customers get
the best. Visit our Materials Development
