Updated NORSOK M-710, API 6A, ISO 23936-2 and Total Approved Materials for Oil & Gas Industry
In today’s Oil & Gas industry, the application environments are always changing with increasingly higher demands to improve seal elastomer performance.
The industry has established testing standards for sealing materials typically used in applications such as subsea control systems, valves, and drilling systems within critical environments.
These standards are focused on Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) testing and Sour Service (H2S) ageing on elastomers and thermoplastics.
The most relevant standards set today are NORSOK M-710 established by the Norwegian Petroleum Industry, ISO 23936-2 (the most recent global standard) and API 6A FF/HH (ISO standard 10423:2009).
Ceetak works in partnership with Parker Hannifin, who for decades has provided cutting edge elastomer development to the Energy, Oil & Gas industry. As specific elastomers are developed for use in critical applications such as RGD and sour services, each material is independently tested and certified. We have a variety of material formulations within the HNBR, FKM, AFLAS® and FFKM families that have passed the requirements for NORSOK M-710, ISO 23936-2, API 6A and Total.
