When the going gets rough, the tough get going

Maximising customer value

Working together from concept stage to product launch we can go beyond small measures and truly create solutions that give our customers real competitive advantage.

Pushing the boundaries
to improve vehicle performance

In environments where temperatures, friction, parasitic losses and loads are high, fluids are aggressive and NVH becomes an issue – that’s where VICTREX™ PEEK polymer solutions and VICTREX HPG™ gears can provide considerable benefits.
automotive shift forks

Structural and mechanical strength

In shift fork applications, VICTREX PEEK offers an excellent combination of dynamic fatigue strength and wear resistance enabling functional integration by reducing complexity and supporting total system cost-effectiveness and help achieve CO₂ targets with an up to 70% weight reduction potential vs. metal.

seal rings

Reliable operation and improved efficiency in powertrain seals

Selecting the right material is a key criteria to cost-effectively ensure reliable operation in high-load, high-temperature spaces, improve efficiency and enable smooth assembly.

bearing applications

VICTREX™ PEEK - Where you really don’t want wear

Tribological performance is essential to efficiency and reliability in bearings, particularly in mixed lubrications conditions. In thrust washers, bushings and bearing cages VICTREX PEEK can provide excellent wear performance across a range of velocity and pressure scenarios, improved NVH in plain bearings, and potential for component downsizing.

improved NVH with VICTREX HPG™ gears

Victrex gear solutions provide opportunities in mass balance systems to reach quieter and more efficient engines never thought possible by design teams in the past. Our webinar highlights durability and NVH data as well as cost saving potential.
