GP&C Announces New Composite Frac Plug in 5” Size

HC 5.0 Frac Plug by GPC

General Plastics & Composites is excited to announce yet another new composite frac plug, the HC 5.0. The new size complements our existing plug portfolio (HC 5.5 and 4.5 composite frac plug) and provides the same high performance and high quality you expect from GPC. The HC 5.0 features wedge fins for even slip break up, field-proven ceramic buttons for easy drill out and reliable performance, 1.00” large bore ID for maximum flow and an optional add-on of a water saving pump down ring.

“We’re proud to offer our 100 percent composite construction to more of our customers with the 5.0” size frac plug,” said David Walstad, CEO, General Plastics & Composites. “We will continue creating new, compatible products with the best engineering, proprietary leading industry materials, and high-quality standards.”

The new frac plug has no metal content or buttons and is manufactured with our proprietary automated stacking process to increase maximum bypass rate. It’s also rigorously tested at rated pressure and rated temperature simultaneously for a minimum of four hours. It also features ample button clearance for run in hole, single piece upper and patented lower single piece element system, pinned lower slips and pinned lower wedge for added strength.
