WG101 is a new tribological compound from Victrex Polymer Solutions (West Conshhocken, Pa.), a division of Victrex plc. This thermoplastic compound is designed to meet the requirements of mechanical load and tribological performance in challenging thermal and chemical environments. It offers significantly improved wear rates and reduced coefficient of friction when compared to standard Victrex PEEK 450FC30. The material also offers a 30 percent increase in compressive strength when compared to standard PEEK 450FC30 and is PTFE-free. Designed for full plastic wear bushings, composite bushings and vane tips in vacuum pumps, WG101 offers good mechanical, tribological and thermal properties. Additional benefits include good melt flow, which allows thin-walled intricate component design, and good weld line strength. WG101 is injection moldable, RoHS compliant and meets the Global Automotive Declarable Substance List (GADSL) requirements.
