JEC Europe 2014 - Thermoplastics are high-flow, easy processing materials that yield parts with a high modulus.

This helps engineers design components that can deliver equivalent strength and stiffness at up to 70% lower weight when compared to traditional aerospace metals such as stainless steel, titanium, and aluminium.

Under the same conditions, Victrex PEEK high-modulus polymers provide up to 100 times longer fatigue life and up to 20% higher specific strength and stiffness when compared to Aluminium 7075-T6. High mechanical properties, performance across a broad temperature range and durability in chemically aggressive environments allow Victrex PEEK polymers to continue to be a material of choice for the aerospace industry.

The Victrex PEEK 90HMF40 polymer has successfully secured the qualification for the aerospace industry with Airbus.
