VESTAKEEP® PEEK - A Material for Long Service Life
Developers of electronic devices that contain plastic place a premium on two basic properties: mechanical function and electrical insulation. Added to this are additional requirements such as low weight, reduced size, halogen-free flame protection, lead-free welding, and metal replacement, to name just a few.

Evonik is a partner to the electronics industry and has for many years offered material solutions for these tasks. With our product range comprising

- VESTODUR® - PBT 
- VESTAMID® - PA 12
- TROGAMID® PA 6-3-T
- VESTAMID HTplus® - PPA


we have extensive experience in the field of electrical and electronic applications. 


The new molding compounds based on the thermoplastic material VESTAKEEP® PEEK expand our range to include materials with unique property combinations that can be customized to the growing needs of the electronics industry. Because these compounds excel at resisting chemicals, extreme temperatures, and wear and at keeping their dimensional stability, they can make a crucial contribution to the performance of electronic devices. 


Reasons for using VESTAKEEP® PEEK in the electronics industry are:

ecological:
- compliance with RoHS and WEEE - flame protection without additives
- lead-free welding possible
- up to 50% regrind can be added
economic:
- ease of flow for thin walls - can be processed in extremely short cycles
- flash-free
- approved to UL94
technical:
- excellent electrical properties - short-term resistance to temperatures up to +350°C
- high permanent service temperature up to +160°C
- high resistance to chemicals
- high abrasion resistance
- high dimensional stability
- low tendency to creep
- high LOI (limiting oxygen index) without additives
- low mold wear and low corrosion
