With employees gathered from all over the world, the Victrex team made it a priority to put business aside to support an organization that fights against an ailment that has affected so many of our loved ones.
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.
This new capacity will add 2,900 metric tonnes (MT) of polymer output annually and will come on stream in early 2015. Total annual production of VICTREX PAEK polymers after completion will then stand at more than 7,000 MT per annum.
Membranes made from APTIV films increase speaker lifetime by up to 300%, helping manufacturers and consumers avoid the frustrations of membrane distortions and ruptures that can be found when using traditional materials.
Compared to metals, VICTREX PEEK polymers provide up to 80% in weight savings in powertrain components such as seal rings, thrust washers, bushings, bearings, shift fork wear pads, and gears.
Choosing Nova Petrene as an extension of our business makes strategic sense because of their proven track record that spans more than 20 years in the high performance polymer market as well as their ability to drive new business development.
VICTREX™ 90-Series high flow PEEK polymers were developed specifically for thin-walled, intricate component applications and offer higher mechanical properties with improvements in modulus, toughness, and coefficient of thermal expansion.
TISSA TIXPREF™ composite fabrics made out of unidirectional tapes impregnated with VICTREX™ PEEK help reduce cycle time by up to 50%.
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.
The VICTREX WG polymer used to injection mold the sliding bushing is specially formulated for higher speed/higher load applications. It is easily processed and affords excellent part-to-part repeatability.
