Evonik has comprehensively optimized the production process of „Vestakeep“ PEEK and further improved the quality of the product at its Changchun, China, site.|
In particular, energy requirements, material use, and the waste generated during production were reduced under the optimization measures and it was simultaneously possible to boost the productivity of the PEEK plant.
On the product side, the innovative production process results in improved quality, such as better color characteristics.
“Our business with ‘Vestakeep’ high-performance polymers has been showing strong and sustained growth over several years, for example in the automotive, aviation, oil, and gas industries or the medical sector,” says Dr. Ralf Düssel, head of the High Performance Polymers Business Line. “With custom-designed and innovative products we will be able to continue serving existing markets while also opening up new ones.”
Thanks to their high heat and chemical resistance „Vestakeep“ specialty polymers can replace metal components to allow, for example, sophisticated applications in lightweight construction.
