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 PEEK family. Arolux PEKK has an exceptional combination of high temperature resistance, high strength, and stiffness with outstanding resistance to organic acids, bases and good hydrolysis resistance in boiling water and steam. PEKK is inherently flame retardant with Low smoke, toxicity and is halogen free. PEKK is characterized having High purity, very and low extractables. PEKK offers very good wear & abrasion resistance. Arolux PEKK unique combination of properties over a very wide range of temperatures bridges the gap between PEEK & PAI. Arolux PEKK can replace some metal components in highly demanding environments to achieve economies in weight. Opening tremendous opportunities to reduce cost by thermoforming expensive machined PEEK parts for applications in motor covers and fuselage components in aerospace, shrouds, trays, guides, wafer handling in semiconductor components and enclosures and electrical parts for down-hole offshore oil and gas applications.
