VICTREX AM PEAK filament for additive manufacturing
Victrex has launched VICTREX AM PEAK filament. The new offering has been specifically developed and optimised for additive manufacturing. The PEEK incumbent materials on the market today, although used in some AM applications, were designed for conventional manufacturing methods, such as machining and injection moulding.
Cryogenic PEEK polymer meets Shell MESC specifications
Advanced Engineering Valves (AEV) has selected a Victrex high-performance cryogenic PEEK polymer to help its customers operate applications more efficiently and safely.
Flexible composite platform for aircraft bracket projects
Safran Cabin and Victrex have worked together to qualify thermoplastic composite parts on aircraft. A flexible platform is being designed to cut planning and time-to-market of multiple brackets, with the first being a hybrid overmoulded aircraft cabin bracket made of VICTREX AE 250 carbon-fibre-PAEK composite and VICTREX PEEK polymer.
The power of advancing polymers to parts
Celebrating the invention of PEEK polymer 40 years ago, Victrex will be at OTC 2019 in Houston (Booth #505) to emphasise how it has developed its polymers to final parts product range. Today´s list of VICTREX PAEK and PEEK-based innovations covers polymers, films, fibres, pipes, composite and gear solutions.
Innovation in composites: All-thermoplastic drive-shaft system
herone has been declared a winner in the 2019 JEC Innovation Awards, in the aerospace application category. The winning application was the company's all-thermoplastic drive-shaft system overmoulded with an integral gear, designed for use in aerospace. It holds potential and serves as further evidence that Victrex has introduced the next dimension of thermoplastic composites for use in Aerospace based on its high performing VICTREX PAEK...
Thermoplastic composites vital to drive Aerospace build rates
The aircraft industry has forecast that over 35,000 new aircraft will be required within the next 20 years. Meeting this kind of escalating demand clearly calls for new approaches and new technologies. As a consequence, thermoplastic composites are expected to play an increasingly important role in accelerating future aircraft construction – a major theme of JEC World 2018, last week in Paris/France.
