Victrex (West Conshohocken, PA, US) introduced at JEC Europe 2015 its new Victrex hybrid molding technology, which combines the strength of VICTREX PAEK-based continuously reinforced composites with the design flexibility of VICTREX PEEK injection molding solutions. This overmolding process enables the production of a part in minutes compared to the hours it could take for a metal or thermoset equivalent. In addition, achieving high specific strength with up to 60% weight savings as well as consolidating parts to create an elegant, highly-functional component, helps to reduce aircraft manufacturing time and weight.

The oil and gas sector, Victrex's second focus during JEC, emphasized downhole tool performance. Victrex says it is heavily involved with standards committees such as NORSOK, ISO and API in order to develop a comprehensive protocol for the lifetime prediction of high-performance polymers in oil and gas work.
