VICTREX® AE250 Composites
Technical DataSheet | Supplied by
VICTREX® AE250 Composites by Victrex are PAEK (polyaryletherketone) grades reinforced with carbon-fibers. These grades enable system cost reductions, faster manufacturing, reduced cycle times, weight savings (up to 60 per cent under certain circumstances when compared to metals such as aluminum, stainless steel and titanium). Weight reduction translates directly into significant gains in fuel-efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions. They show up to 5x higher specific strength compared to those of metals. They can be processed using hybrid molding technology (bridges the gap between composites and injection molding). When used as inserts in existing injection molding equipment, the hybrid molding process enables overmolding of continuously-reinforced thermoplastic composite with VICTREX® PEEK injection molding polymers. These enable production of continuously-reinforced components that can perform under load. VICTREX® AE250 Composites are suitable for aerospace industry in the form of unidirectional (UD) tape and laminate panels including brackets, clips, clamps, and housings used throughout the aircraft in primary and secondary structures.
