The light-weighting and mechanical benefits of composite technology are widely accepted in aerospace, as evidenced by their steady growth in the manufacture of aircraft since their introduction.
Composite materials such as LMPAEK still have more to offer the industry with system cost reduction and increased throughput, especially with regards to thermoplastic unidirectional tapes, which are well suited to automate composite manufacturing processes.
LMPAEK offers new performance options in 3D printing. Until now achieving the desired mechanical properties of PAEK 3D printed parts has been difficult with existing choices, such as PEEK and PEKK. Now, with VICTREX AM™ 200, designers can achieve better printing, less warp and stronger parts.
Available as a Filament, VICTREX AM 200 supports increased design freedom, improved economics and accelerated time to market.
Victrex focuses on PEEK & PAEK polymers, considered the world's highest performing thermoplastics
Manufacturing product forms: Pipes, Films, Fibres and Composite tapes
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 & sustainable solutions that address world material challenges every day.
