Experts in Oil & Gas

MCAM Engineering Plastics are used in applications in all areas of the Oil, Gas & Industry, Engineering and Maintenance.

Key Benefits:

  • High mechanical strength
  • Chemical and corrosion resistant
  • Materials operating in temperatures of -50ºF (-45.5ºC) to 480°F (250°C)
  • Low weight compared to metal components
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Excellent dimensional stability and quality
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • NORSOK M-710 (sour gas aging)
  • Compliance for Ketron® PEEK stock shapes

Use of MCAM THERMOPLASTICS in Compressor , Pumps & Valves is to enhance

  • Increased MTBR (Mean Time Between Rebuild)
  • Increased MTBF (Meantime Between Failure)
  • Reducing VOC Emissions
  • Reduced Weight & Power Requirements
  • Improved Chemical Resistance
  • Reduce Seals Clearance
  • Prolong Wear Life
  • Improved Overall Performance & Efficiencies



  • A PUMP is a machine that moves fluids (either liquids or gases) by mechanical action. Normally we think of PUMPS moving liquids (incompressible fluid)



  • Valves regulate fluid flow by opening and closing. The moving parts of a valve and their actuators
    are prime opportunities to improve performance through the use of advanced engineered thermoplastics.​


Use of MCAM THERMOPLASTICS in Compressor

  • A COMPRESSOR is a PUMP that compresses and moves compressible fluids…..aka GAS.
    There are different types of compressors, some of which are

    ✓ Positive Displacement (Reciprocating or Rotary),
    ✓ Dynamic (Centrifugal / Axial)

Offshore & Onshore - Oil & Gas Equipment


Deep ocean equipment and systems far off-shore and below the water line often include equipment located on the sea floor. Suitable materials in this extreme environment call for excellent strength and stiffness across a broad temperature spectrum as well as great toughness, impact, and corrosion resistance.


Highly engineered sonar and exploratory sensing equipment is used to locate, identify, define,and even map the ocean floor. Materials may require electrical insulation, impact resistance for toughness at cold temperatures, and the ability to handle extreme pressures at great depths.​

Above Water

Above the water structures, components, systems, and accompanying vessels are used for well drilling, exploration, or extraction of petroleum and natural gas. Necessary materials for these environments offer light weight, strength and stiffness, along with wear resistance and great corrosion resistance.

Down Hole

Down-hole equipment is anything that may go into the well for drilling, completion, or production enhancement of the flow from the underground reservoir. Components demand extreme strength and stiffness at various temperatures, along with the ability to resist degradation
from aggressive drilling fluids and down-hole chemicals.
