Solvay Advanced Polymers: Wear-resistant grades added to PEEK ranges

Solvay Advanced Polymers (Alpharetta, Georgia / USA; www.solvayadvancedpolymers.com) has introduced five wear-resistant grades to its range of "KetaSpire” and "AvaSpire” modified PEEK resins. The formulations provide an alternative to more complex metal-based designs with rolling components for high-temperature friction and wear applications in lubricated and non-lubricated environments.

The products have been developed for high-performance injection moulded applications, including seal rings, thrust washers, brake components, gears and needle bearing replacements for the automotive, industrial, and heavy-duty equipment industries.
