Reliable, lightweight tubing solutions from Victrex are accelerating the adoption of metal-replacement in high-voltage cable conduit lines
Solution-orientated and value-added applications will be showcased by Victrex at this year’s Chinaplas in April. The world’s leading PAEK manufacturer with its own technology centre and sales office in Shanghai is focusing on efficiency, durability and lightweight construction in the automotive and aviation industries, but also on tailor-made applications for the electronics industry.
Victrex has successfully obtained the rigorous AS9100C/ISO9001:2008 aerospace certification for its VICTREX Pipes™ production lines. This certification gives the aerospace industry the confidence to specify the robust, lightweight tubing made from VICTREX™ PEEK polymer.
PFW Aerospace and Victrex developed and qualified a novel VICTREX PEEK polymer-based pipe system for the cargo drainage system on the Airbus A350 XWB. Due to the use of lightweight, thin-wall VICTREX Pipes, the innovative pipe system is 33% lighter and is the first viable alternative to metal tubing introduced to the aerospace market.
