At the upcoming K 2019 show Victrex, a world-leader in high-performance polymer solutions, will be showcasing its recent solutions under the theme ‘The Element of Invention’.
Complementing the many pioneering innovations that followed the invention of PEEK thermoplastic over 40 years ago, the VICTREX PEEK and PAEK polymer-based portfolio on display will include innovative food grade, additive manufacturing, composite, film and gear solutions.
Ranging across leading industrial sectors, these products and the knowhow of Victrex contribute to solving material limitations in advanced applications, often replacing metals.
Victrex CEO Jakob Sigurdsson said: “The invention of PEEK polymer has clearly had a very positive impact across industries and, in fact, across the globe. We could never have imagined the continuous stream of innovation this high-performing versatile polymer would make possible. Visitors to the Victrex K 2019 show stand can look forward to pioneering new grades as well as exciting progress on forms and parts in critical applications where high-performance polymers deliver a strong advantage in the development of new markets.”
Victrex will also showcase new PAEK materials, including products developed for use in 3D printing: filament for filament fusion (FF) or fine powder for laser sintering (LS). These new solutions deliver better results with improved mechanical properties in printed parts and easier printing than past attempts.
To speed the availability of 3D-printed PAEK parts, Victrex is investing in these new materials optimised for AM and pairing them with new machine technology in order to create integrated solutions.
The company is working directly with key industry partners and customers to build an AM PAEK eco-system.
