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.
From the invention of PEEK over 40 years ago, Victrex has continually pioneered new PAEK-based polymers, materials and solutions that have transformed markets, delivering global impact in the toughest environments.
We bring transformational solutions that address world material challenges every day.
