ARYLEX® compounds are developed using high performance polyaryletherketone polymers, such as PEEK (polyetheretherketone).
These semi-crystalline thermoplastic-based compounds offer outstanding chemical and thermal resistance. Depending on the design and part configuration, reinforced PEEK can maintain acceptable physical properties at elevated temperatures approaching 550°F.
Specific performance characteristics and property balance are obtained by compounding with fibers, lubricating additives, and modulus enhancing fillers.
Typical properties are provided based on testing of standard coupons produced from two different molding processes: injection molding (IM) and compression molding (CM). Compression molding processes are normally chosen where low volumes or large diameters are not economically viable for the molding operation.
