The Expertise to Meet Tough Challenges Head-on

Materia is a leading innovator in the development and manufacture of advanced materials that solve today’s challenges of extreme conditions. We take an interdisciplinary approach to every challenge, ensuring we deliver the highest performance products companies demand with the ease of use companies want.

Made for HPHT

Proxima® thermoset polymers exhibit excellent stability in HPHT environments, delivering more modular and robust products with lower risks than traditional materials. Operating temperature up to 400 °F (204 °C) and depths >10,000 feet, products made from Proxima thermoset resins can help you meet the most demanding HPHT challenges at better economics than other products.

Our skilled team works with companies in the oil & gas market to develop and integrate custom formulations of our high-performance Proxima thermoset resins, specially designed for the challenges of withstanding HPHT environments.

Made for Deepwater

Proxima syntactic foams are lighter and easier to manufacture than standard systems, and unlike epoxy syntactic foams, which must be processed in small sections or with slow cure cycles, Proxima resins cure by a robust, reliable, and controlled process. With Proxima syntactic foams, manufacturers can reduce system costs and be more responsive.

Made for Flow Assurance

Materia offers a unified insulation system for subsea flowlines, field joints, and equipment that can be rapidly applied in both factory and field settings by a high-integrity casting process. Our integrated system enables customers to leverage our innovative materials to successfully extract resources found in today’s most extreme conditions.

Our highly skilled engineers bring expertise from various disciplines to accelerate product development cycle times. We have integrated teams that focus on formulation development, prototyping, manufacturing process development, and pilot production. We work with our partners to find the quickest and most economical path to enable rapid implementation of new technologies.

Made for Better Drillability

Proxima casting resins combine excellent thermal stability and toughness along with fast and easy PDC drillability and machining. Proxima thermosets offer better drillability than aluminum, better thermal stability than standard thermoplastics, and better wear resistance than typical compression-molded thermosets.

Proxima composites are reliably made with low scrap rates and high-quality part production – no brittleness, no cracking. The result: downhole equipment that provides faster completions, shorter rig times, and end-to-end cost savings.
