THE FREEDOM
TO DESIGN MORE
WITH LESS
Home appliances are evolving. Consumers expect their appliances to be smarter yet simpler. Manufacturers are challenged to incorporate latest technologies into smaller form factor. Energy efficiency and noise are still major concerns.
Particularly with the recent EU ban on inefficient vacuum cleaners - those with over 900 watt output and emitting more than 80 dBs - design engineers are looking for innovative ways to meet these new regulatory requirements.
With Victrex, lower power can still mean high performance. VICTREX PEEK-based  solutions enable vacuum cleaner motors to be designed to maintain suction performance and reliability at lower power consumption and noise output levels. All of which equals more design feeedom.
Victrex can give you a range of options that will help you reduce the impact of the major challenges affecting the market today. Proving that less is more
NOISE
REDUCTION
3dB Noise reduction when switching from metal to VICTREX™ PEEK - which is 50% quieter to the human ear. Less noise enables quieter operation without compromising performance.
ENHANCED DURABILITY
Enhanced durability and minimum deformation at faster than 100,000 rpm operation.
INCREASED EFFICIENCY

Improve appliance energy efficiency by up to 2% through reducing weight with VICTREX-PEEK based components by up to 40% compared to steel.

VICTREX PEEK GIVES YOU ALL THIS. AND MORE.
Stability of the injection-moulded solution at extremely high RPM enables vacuum motors to be manufactured maintaining suction at lower power consumption and noise generation. And there are more benefits for various home appliances.

VICTREX PEEK offers you:

  • High wear performance
  • High creep resistance
  • High temperature performance
  • Good chemical & hydrolysis resistance
  • Meets flammability requirements
  • Equivalent or more durability and reliability to replace metal
CREATE A BUZZ. NOT NOISE
Heavy metal components can result in loud, inefficient operation. Collaborate with Victrex to reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) in electronic home appliances.
