PAEK composite research results and innovation from ITHEC 2018

Several companies, including Victrex, presented their results on the potential of lower melting PAEK polymer solutions

How PAEK thermoplastic composites and related hybrid over-moulding processes can open a broader range of manufacturing options for aerospace parts was one of the central topics at the “ITHEC 2018 - 4th International Conference & Exhibition on Thermoplastic Composites”, October 30th-31st in Bremen, Germany.

Several companies, including Victrex, presented their results on the potential of lower melting PAEK polymer solutions to address unmet challenges around the large-scale automation and production of PAEK thermoplastic composites, including functionalisation by hybrid over-moulding.

The combination of an innovative Victrex PAEK polymer and reinforcing carbon fibres offers mechanical properties that are consistent with the requirements for structural aerospace applications.
