Sustainability is at the top of our agenda
Explore our infographic to see our ambitious path to net zero and how VICTREX PEEK supports a sustainable approach in magnet wire insulation vs. enamel.
Reliable insulation of bearings is key to ensure efficient performance over the component lifetime. Using VICTREX™ PEEK to overmould bearings helps address reliable electrical insulation of large or small bearings and potentially reduces component cost.
Bus bars are a safety critical component and key for system efficiency & reliability in EV batteries, e-motors or power electronics. They need to perform in the most demanding environments. VICTREX™ PEEK offers a combination of excellent temperature performance and electrical properties to ensure durability as well as extended flammability resistance.
