YOU PARTNER IN THE FUTURE OF FLIGHT

PEEK and PAEK-based solutions that replace metals, thermosets and other aerospace polymers

Performance meets processability

Our high-performance PEEK and PAEK-based polymer solutions offer an exceptional combination of benefits to help aerospace OEMs, designers and processors reach new levels of cost savings, quality, and performance. Victrex solutions help lower weight, improve buy-to-fly ratios, and provide design freedom to optimise the design and consolidate parts.

Working together to solve the toughest aerospace challenges

Cost reductions and improving operating efficiencies are paramount

Technologies offering reduced costs and increased throughput are a major benefit for the aerospace industry

Reducing weight to improve fuel efficiency is necessary

High fuel costs and preserving the environment are major challenges

Longer service life and reliability are required

Aircraft are expected to be safe with minimal maintenance requirements
