VICTREX™ PEEK polymers have prompted advances across industries. They remain a source of active innovation. As a metal replacement solution, these high-performance polymers help meet key engineering requirements in critical components.
Suitable for continuous-use temperatures up to 260°C (500°F). Glass transition temperatures up to 170°C (338°F)
Low coefficient of friction. High abrasion and cut-through resistance.
High strength and stiffness in demanding conditions. Excellent long-term creep and fatigue properties
Withstands a wide range of acids and bases and shows excellent performance in hydrocarbons and organic solvents.
Consistent properties across a range of frequencies and temperatures. Insulating, conducting and static dissipative materials.
Resistance to gamma and electron beam radiation as well as transparent to X-rays.
Most standard reciprocating screw injection moulding machines are capable of moulding unfilled and filled VICTREX PEEK grades. Complex and intricate high performance components can be mass-produced without annealing or conventional machining. Victrex technical experts can assist with design and process variables such as machine design, barrel capacity, screw and mold design and gating.
VICTREX PEEK thermoplastics can be used in extrusion processes and equipment including wire coating, profile extrusion, film, pipe, sheet and monofilament production. Unfilled and filled grades are readily extruded using conventional melt processing technology. Our highly experienced technical team can help define the machine design and address any processing challenges.
Compression moulded parts are generally more crystalline, have a higher modulus and tensile strength and are harder with a lower ductility. Glass and carbon fibres may be combined with VICTREX PEEK for compression moulding. Our technical team recommends that our customers anneal parts with very thick sections to relieve stresses.
We worked closely with Victrex for more than three years, involving them in every stage of the product development phase through to the qualification. Together, we have successfully delivered an alternative to metal tubing and a next generation solution for commercial aircraft.
