Exquip Protectors are designed, manufactured and tested to match & exceed:
- API 5 CT Annex I
- IADC/SPE 17209 & 11396
- Tests for special designs with up to 5000 Joules impact Resistance
Exquip Protectors are continuously tested according to IADC/SPE 17209, 11396 and API 5CT Annex I to match and exceed these specifications. Every year, a selection of different tests is carried out and documented - partly "in-house" but also in an independent test laboratory - to ensure a consistently high material and product quality, which is essential for our customers and their end customers in order to avoid failures or production downtimes on their side.
High strength elasticity and natural stability achieved through utilization of advanced polymer engineering and self-developed manufacturing methods eliminates the need for steel reinforcements which is used as dimension stabilizing element in composite protectors. Read more
The material used for the production of Exquip protectors does not impair environmental conditions during processing and manufacture. CNC-shavings and production rejects will be shred and used for new manufacture, any surplus material will be disposed of by dispatching to plastic recycling industries. Furthermore, used protectors can be returned to Exquip for recycling or refurbishing. Read more
