Putting steel in the shade: PEEK valve plates last 12x longer

Victrex showcased the performance of their polyaryletherketones (PAEK) product portfolio across a broad temperature range. Victrex PEEK 90HMF40, which was recently accredited  by Airbus, is said to permit weight savings of up to 40% compared to  aluminium. The polymer is claimed to be characterised by up to 100 times longer fatigue strength and up to 20% higher specific strength and stiffness as compared with aluminium 7075-T6 used in the aerospace industry under the same conditions.

In automotive construction, components made of Victrex WG polymers with optimised slip/friction properties are intended to extend the service life and raise the efficiency of components, including electric pumps, for example. As compared to other high-performance plastics, the friction coefficient with Victrex polymers is lower, depending on the requirement profile, and remains stable over the life of the product, according to the company.
