Zirconia Frac Plug Buttons for Composite Slips

Morgan’s Nilcra® Ceramic Buttons offer an ideal solution when used in Composite Frac Plugs. Our buttons are manufactured from Nilcra® PSZ, the world’s toughest ceramic; offering extremely high strength, hardness and corrosion resistance.  Our exclusive fracture toughness prevents plug cracking or chipping during service.

The unique “transformation toughening” property of Nilcra® PSZ eliminates crack propagation at the critical button edge thus maintaining the structural integrity and optimal well stimulation and output.
