Advanced PAEK Composite Solutions

VICTREX™ PAEK-based composites are the solution of choice for applications that demand the performance of PEEK, combined with increased mechanical properties. The result is a composite material that offers comparable performance with metals as well as many additional benefits.
Text
Text

Mechanical Strength

More than ten times higher impact strength and damage tolerance compared to thermosets.

Text

Tailored Performance

Consistent quality and tight tolerance contribute to predictable, tailorable performance including localised reinforcements.

Text

Weight Savings

Fatigue resistance and strength are comparable to metals with weight savings up to 60% lighter compared to metals and metal alloys.

Text

Processability

Long-term reliability due to excellent fatigue and creep resistance.

Text

Fatigue Performance

Up to 50x greater fatigue resistance vs metals typically used in anatomic trauma plates.

Text

Chemical Resistance

Greater durability in harsh chemical environments compared to metals.

Innovative composite solutions for demanding applications

Enhanced application performance, the need for reliability and durability combined with the need for reduced manufacturing costs and speed to market are key drivers in composite application development. These trends are supporting the proliferation of continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastic composites.
