Automotive sales and a change in the mind-set of
consumers indicate: the industry is transitioning
to electric vehicles. Yet, the quest for more
efficient high-density e-motors and lower cost is
As industries strive for faster, smaller, lighter and more durable, the extremes in which products are expected to function are on the rise. Find out how engineers are meeting these complex design needs with thermoplastics.
Throughout the plastics industry, PEEK is widely viewed as a leading high-performance polymer (HPP). However, the materials of choice in the automotive, aerospace, oil & gas and medical device industries have long been metals. PEEK polymer is fast changing that mind-set.
The widespread use of polymers has revolutionised our lives in the last 75 years or so. There is a wide range from every-day commodity plastics up to high-performance polymers (HPP), such as VICTREX™ PEEK, that are able to perform in very demanding durable applications.
