Up to 80% weight savings vs. metal helps to reduce stress on mechanical systems.
Excellent resistance to moisture, chemicals, and environmental elements in wet offshore locations.
Reliability for the next generation of renewables technology
The wind turbine industry continues to seek higher power, increased torque density, improved reliability, and greater worker safety. Brakes, roller bearing cages, and sliding bearings made with VICTREX™ PEEK polymers can deliver improved strength/weight ratio, excellent wear performance, design freedom and weight savings.
Victrex PEEK-based components have been used in existing infrastructure for distribution of gases including hydrogen for many years. Adaptation of existing PEEK-based sealing, isolation, and compression technologies is anticipated to be a practical means to realize the energy transition to hydrogen on an accelerated timeline. These benefits, technical attributes, and an existing manufacturing base of processors/moulders, tier 1 suppliers, and OEMs should enable rapid scalable production.
VICTREX PEEK polymer has excellent radiation resistance and electrical properties across a wide range of temperatures. In addition, its superior mechanical strength, good chemical resistance, low moisture absorption and excellent hydrolysis resistance make it a good choice for cable coverings and conductive wire insulation system in the nuclear power industry.
