With its VESTAKEEP® powders Evonik quickly became a respected partner to organizations with global operations that manufacture U-profiles (UD tapes), fiber composite sheets (prepregs), laminates, and fabrics. Composite materials made with VESTAKEEP
PEEK have remarkable mechanical properties, excellent consolidation, and high chemical resistance.
Fiber composites are manufacturing using unidirectional fiber layers or fabrics made of glass, carbon, or aramid fibers with a VESTAKEEP
PEEK matrix. They are coated by means of powder coating processes or emulsion coating. To those who manufacture composites, we recommend medium-viscosity VESTAKEEP
PEEK powders from the 2000 range. The particle size depends on the chosen process, though preference is given to fine and ultra-fine powders.
