VICTREX FG™ product family addresses industry performance criteria and compliance requirements for food applications
Driving innovations and progress based on high-performing PAEK and PEEK thermoplastic polymers
David Hummel, Chief Executive of Victrex, said: “The acquisition of Zyex is compelling for Victrex, enabling us to drive future growth opportunities within well-aligned markets and developing application areas.”
Guiding themes: Reliability, total cost-efficiency and impressive performance supports innovation in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, and energy industries
HuanTian Industrial and Victrex are developing a parts material standard for China’s reciprocating compressor industry.
The use of PEEK can deliver significant cost savings to the manufacturer. Compared with metals, the high-performance thermoplastic affords greater design flexibility and makes it possible to create more complex components, meeting the challenging design needs of a variety of applications.
Other materials provide excellent temperature and chemical resistance but none match the mechanical strength provided by the expanded APTIV films. With the continual increase in demands on filter performance, VICTREX PEEK-based PolyGrid is the solution to meet the critical performance challenges.
VICTREX PEEK is a thermoplastic polymer that combines outstanding mechanical properties and chemical resistance even at very high temperature. Because of its robustness, ease of processing, as well as the cost efficiency of injection moulding, VICTREX PEEK is an ideal high performance material for demanding electronics applications.
Traditionally, bushings and wear rings have been made from metallic materials such as Bronze, Stainless Steel and cast iron, but today CREACOMP™ PT thermoplastic reinforced VICTREX PEEK polymer-based composite materials, available in four grades, can now be used as a metal replacement.
