Industry

Oil & Gas

Topside, Subsea, Downhole & Pipelines – Viva Materials are utilised in all areas of the energy generation process.

The offshore energy sector presents some of the most challenging engineering problems due to extreme weather conditions, high subsea pressures, and high temperature variances. Our cast nylon materials enable engineers to develop lightweight and maintenance free solutions to combat these offshore exploration, production and energy industry conditions.

Low Moisture Absorption

Limit changes in material properties, such as dimension or mechanical strength usually associated with moisture absorption.

Dimensional Stable

Maintains original dimensions during changes in temperature and humidity.

Near Neutral Buoyancy

Materials neither fall nor sink when submerged in water.
