Victrex to showcase new product in Paris
Paris, March 9, 2014
Victrex Polymer Solutions, a unit of British-based Victrex that produces high-performance polymers, is set to showcase its ‘Peek’ polymer to address the key interests of the oil and gas, and aircraft and automotive industries in Paris this week.
The JEC Europe Composites will be held from March 11 to 13 at the Paris expo Port de Versailles.
Dr Alan Wood, principal scientist - Applied Technologies at Victrex, will address the myths surrounding thermoplastic-matrix composites, during his presentation “Thermoplastic-Matrix Composites – the Myths, the Barriers to Use and the Solutions” at the Thermoplastics Day of the Innovative Composite Summit that will run concurrently with the show.
Dr Wood will reveal the potential of thermoplastic-matrix composites and illustrate the potential for hybrid processing technologies.
Stephen Dougherty, strategic marketing director at Victrex, said: “To achieve a competitive advantage, many industries are forced to find ways to replace metals or other materials that have reached their limits in certain applications and environments. Our high performance thermoplastics help customers turn challenging application requirements into genuine added value.
“We will use the JEC show in Paris next week to showcase key applications such as, clamps, seals, connectors or gears that are already making a real difference in real application, adding value and efficiency in some of the most challenging environments.” - TradeArabia News Service
