CAMX 2016 preview: Victrex USA
Victrex USA Inc. (W. Conshohocken, PA, US) is featuring its new carbon fiber/polyaryletherketone (PAEK) unidirectional (UD) tape and laminate panels.

PAEK targets aerospace composites
Victrex (West Conshohocken, PA, US) has launched VICTREX AE250, a polyaryletherketone (PAEK) thermoplastic resin matrix material designed for the fabrication of composite brackets, clips, clamps and housings used throughout aircraft in primary and secondary structures.

A350 XWB cabin door fitting switched from aluminum to PEEK
PEEK 90HMF40, from Victrex, is used to injection mold a carbon fiber-reinforced fitting that connects the outer skin to points on the internal bracing structure of the cabin door.

CAMX 2015 preview: Victrex
Victrex (Thornton Clevelys, UK) is featuring its hybrid molding technology that allows engineers to overmold a PAEK-based composite with fiber-reinforced PEEK injection molding materials.

Victrex acquires Kleiss Gears
The pairing of Kleiss Gears’ high precision gear design, testing and manufacturing capability with Victrex’s materials technology, provides a new integrated option for customers.

Overmolding expands PEEK’s range in composites
A new polymer and a hybrid process enable production of complex, high-load-capable, fiber-reinforced brackets and clips in minutes.

New bracket technology introduced to the aircraft industry
The bracket is specified in commercial aircraft such as Bombardier's C-Series, Global and Learjet aircraft.

Thermoplastic composites technology: A view from Europe
For this Dutch consortium, bringing the manufacturability of thermoplastic materials to maturity is the goal in concert with OEMs, materials and equipment supplier members.

Victrex PAEK facility comes online

JEC Europe 2015: Product and exhibit previews
The world's largest composites trade show, JEC Europe, is coming up next week, March 10-12 in Paris, France. CW received from some exhibitors a preview of the products and technologies that they will have on exhibit at the show.

At JEC Europe 2015: Victrex
The West Conshohocken, PA, US-based thermoplastic resins formulator introduced 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.

The markets: Oil and gas (2015)
High-performance composites can outperform traditional technologies in riser, jumper, intervention line, cable and umbilical applications. There has been progress in each of these areas.

Hybrid molding process and material
Victrex reports that it has developed a new polyaryletherketone (PAEK)-based polymer as well as a hybrid molding technology that allows the overmolding of the PAEK composite with fiber-reinforced Victrex PEEK injection molding materials.

Victrex materials added to Digimat-MX database
Information about three Victrex PEEK grades are now available on the structural modeling platform to help expedite application development.

JEC Europe 2014 Review
The composites world met again in Paris, vibrant, stronger, and more forward-looking than ever before.
