Reliable, lightweight tubing solutions from Victrex are accelerating the adoption of metal-replacement in high-voltage cable conduit lines delivering up to 45% weight savings vs metal.
Hybrid overmoulded composite parts for system attachments and bracketry in commercial aircraft can reduce weight, part count, and eliminate secondary processes.
Durable, flame resistant thermal acoustic blanket insulation saves up to 60% compared to PVF film systems.
VICTREX AE™ 250 composite material solutions combined with advanced manufacturing processes such as hybrid overmoulding or automated fibre placement offer an attractive combination of cost reductions, weight savings, design freedom, strength and production speed in next-generation components.
Victrex can help you design for stability in the most extreme aerospace environments. VICTREX™ PEEK and PAEK polymers have good elevated temperature performance, excellent mechanical properties, and chemical resistance to aviation fluids such as skydrol make, as well as low FST and lower density to common aircraft metals. These inherent properties combined with the design freedom to help consolidate parts for easier installation components for enhanced manufacturing efficiency make a compelling case to replace metal with PEEK and PAEK polymeric solutions.
From the invention of PEEK over 40 years ago, Victrex has continually pioneered new PAEK-based polymers, materials and solutions that have transformed markets, delivering global impact in the toughest environments.
We bring transformational solutions that address world material challenges every day.
