ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik Industries is significantly expanding its polyether ether ketone (PEEK) capacity in response to growing global demand. Along with a number of optimization measures, the company is modernizing an existing plant. The project at the Changchun site in China is scheduled to be completed by 3rd quarter 2011. Evonik has been selling its highly temperature-proof and chemical-resistant PEEK polymers under the brand name VESTAKEEP for a number of years.

 

“The capacity expansion not only reflects the continuous growth in all relevant industries, but is also the result of the successful commercialization of numerous new projects,” said Sanjeev Taneja, Global Business VESTAKEEP Manager, Evonik. The combination of mechanical, thermal and tribological properties, VESTAKEEP PEEK allows the replacement of metal in these and several other applications. VESTAKEEP 5000G is the latest PEEK polymer addition to Evonik’s product range. The comprehensive product portfolio covers virtually all industrial applications.
