VESTAKEEP® - Quality & Approvals
Evonik has comprehensively optimized the production process of VESTAKEEP® PEEK and further improved the quality of the product at its Changchun, China, site. The Group is thus positioning itself as a reliable partner on the global PEEK market for the long term.

Setting New Technical Standards


In particular, energy requirements, material use, and the waste generated during production were reduced under the optimization measures and it was simultaneously possible to boost the productivity of the PEEK plant. Evonik is thus setting new technical standards in environmental protection and safety in polyetheretherketone production.

On the product side, the innovative production process results in improved quality, such as better color characteristics.

Dr. Ralf Düssel, head of the High Performance Polymers Business Line, said:
“Our business with VESTAKEEP® high-performance polymers has been showing strong and sustained growth over several years, for example in the automotive, aviation, oil, and gas industries or the medical sector. With custom-designed and innovative products we will be able to continue serving existing markets while also opening up new ones.”

VESTAKEEP® Replaces Metal


Due to their high heat and chemical resistance VESTAKEEP® specialty polymers can replace metal components to allow, for example, sophisticated applications in lightweight construction.

Evonik has more than 50 years of experience in the development and production of high-performance polymers. Its extensive product portfolio includes solutions for almost all industrial applications.
