When high pressures, high temperatures, abrasive fluids and saltwater combine, only plastics can withstand the attack. Plastics are ideal for use in protective equipment, surface coatings, and even structural components. Proper material selection can give long life under conditions which destroy most metals. When cost, down-time, and rig personnel safety are critical, plastics are often the best choice for drilling applications. And, because of their advanced properties, composites are used in down- hole equipment bearings, seals, connectors, and insulators.

The paragraphs below describe specific materials and their uses in this industry . . .
