Victrex Polymer Solutions, the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance polyaryletherketones will showcase its material innovations at K-Show 2010 (Hall 05/Booth D11) in Düsseldorf, Germany. Victrex will highlight a number of new products and technology solutions in areas such as composites, laser sintering, wear reduction, films and coatings. Victrex will introduce its recent application development work with customers in the aerospace, automotive, energy, electronics and industrial markets.
The K-Show is held every three years and it will take place in 2010 between October 27th and November 3rd. It is the biggest international trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry.
“Victrex is far more than just a polymer supplier: we are a technically driven materials solutions provider,” commented Ralf Heinz, Marketing Manager Europe, Victrex Polymer Solutions. “Through a combination of in-depth product and application development support we help customers achieve the greatest possible benefit from the use of our materials.” Victrex offers a number of PEEK-dedicated resources and services to integrate into their customer’s application development process. This includes such work as creating lighter weight designs, finding ways to enable improved fuel efficiency, developing products that can operate in more demanding environments and achieving timely, cost-effective reliable solutions for long life applications.
For example, VICTREX PEEK-based materials are successfully displacing metals and traditional plastics such as theromosets in a growing number of aerospace applications due to its exceptional strength, light weight, flame retardancy and ability to be easily fabricated into tight tolerance parts.
“The K-Show provides a great platform for us to practically demonstrate our commitment to create new business opportunities with customers and to further shape the future of the materials industry,” concluded Heinz.
