VESTAKEEP® PEEK—The Answer to Rising Demands
With its outstanding properties, VESTAKEEP® PEEK comes top of the league of high-performance thermoplastic materials. The growing demands for system solutions in automotive construction make it ever more indispensable.
EVONIK has been a reliable partner to the automotive industry and its suppliers for 40 years, especially when it comes to converting innovative ideas into new products and system solutions. This success rests on a range of highly successful engineering materials and our wealth of experience in this sector, which enables us to always select the right material for your application.
PEEK is distinguished by the sum total of its unusual properties. The following ones are especially important for automotive applications:
high mechanical strength combined with high impact strength
resistance to high and low temperatures
Good abrasion resistance and a low coefficient of friction
excellent chemical resistance
low moisture absorption combined with very low thermal expansion
Freedom from corrosion and weight reduction
PEEK is easy to process, for example, byinjection molding
, the predominant process in automotive construction. But the material is also very easy to extrude and is suitable forcoating
PEEK can be machined, welded, marked, and bonded with ease. This makes it highly suitable for applications in running gears, brakes, steering, engine management, clutches, gears, electronics, sensor technology, and climate management.
