Injection Molding and Extrusion
Most standard screw machines are suitable for injection molding and extrusion processing of VESTAKEEP® PEEK. The plasticating unit should be designed for process temperatures of up to 450 °C. It may also be necessary to modify the controller, band heaters, and temperature sensors.
Coating, Laser Sintering, Compression Molding
VESTAKEEP® PEEK powders can be processed with a number of methods, such as compression molding, electrostatic powder spraying, flame spraying, and scattering. They can also be used as a suspension in aqueous as well as solvent-based systems.
