Westlake Plastics has been involved in the aerospace industry since the 1980s as the first company to process several of the high-performance materials used today. We continue to facilitate our customers’ success by developing new materials that not only meet the stringent end use requirements but also satisfy the regulator environment. Our standard aerospace products are listed below, and we welcome the opportunity to utilize our relationships with resin suppliers and OEMs to develop and qualify new materials.

  • Arolux PEKK


    Arolux PEKK

    Arolux PEKK is the first thermoformable PEKK product. Until now the PEKK family of products could not be easily formed and Engineers were forced to rely on machining to get the parts they needed. The thermoformable characteristics of Arolux PEKK expands the application possibilities offered by the PEKK family.
