Designed to perform in industries and applications requiring a combination of high temperature, mechanical performance and dimensional stability.
The ENSINGER portfolio of semi-finished products made of high performance plastics is joined by a new member of the polyaryletherketone family: TECAPEEK ST.
This innovative product based on Victrex® ST™, is designed to perform in industries and applications requiring a combination of high temperature, mechanical performance and dimensional stability. Customer demands for high performance plastics in high temperature ranges are growing. At the same time, machinability, purity and high chemical resistance are very important key properties.
TECAPEEK ST has been developed for demanding temperature environments such as the automotive, oil and gas or electronics industry. Parts and components made of TECAPEEK ST have the potential to perform better, last longer and help customers realize long-term cost savings where other unfilled polymers reach their limits.
Compared to other unfilled polymers (like TECAPEEK natural or TECAPEEK HT), TECAPEEK ST offers an improved mechanical performance, especially in the temperature range from 150 °C / 302 °F to 200 °C / 392 °F.
The glass transition temperature of TECAPEEK ST is at 162 °C / 324 °F (compared to TECAPEEK natural at 143 °C / 289 °F), the heat distortion temperature is in creased from 152 °C / 306 °F (TECAPEEK natural) to 172 °C / 342 °F (TECAPEEK ST).
