1.   PEEK polymers are obtained by step-growth polymerization by the dialkylation of bisphenolate salts


2.   PEEK is a semicrystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperatures.


3.   The processing conditions used to mold PEEK can influence the crystallinity and hence the mechanical properties.


4.   Most standard reciprocating screw injection molding machines are capable of molding unfilled and filled VICTREX PEEK grades.


5.   Complex and intricate high-performance components can be mass-produced without annealing or conventional machining.


6.   VICTREX PEEK thermoplastics can be used in extrusion processes and equipment including wire coating, profile extrusion, film, pipe, sheet and monofilament production.


7.   Unfilled and filled grades are readily extruded using conventional melt processing technology.


8.   Compression molded parts are generally more crystalline, have a higher modulus and tensile strength and are harder with a lower ductility.


9.   Glass and carbon fibers may be combined with VICTREX PEEK for compression molding

·       Reduce fuel consumption and environmental impact with lighter solutions

·       Increase part lifetime through resilient performance across a broad temperature range

·       Enhance component durability with excellent wear and abrasion resistance

·       Reduce downtime and component failure with resistance to harsh chemicals and natural elements

·       Rely on long-term mechanical properties and dimensional stability

·       Meet strict safety requirements with low fire, smoke and toxicity emissions

·       Greater part integrity due to excellent barrier properties against fluids and gases
