High-Performance Film Uses Choice Base Resin

A new amorphous film has been developed with a specific base resin suited for harsh environments. Ajedium Victrex Peek amorphous film can withstand a wider range of solvents, caustics, and steam than other films such as polyetherimide or polysulfone. It is said to be stronger and have better tribological properties than the other films. When compared to polyphenylsulfide films, it claims superior toughness, impact resistance, strength and folding endurance. Film thickness ranges from 0.5 mils to 50 mils with 1 mil, 3 mil, 5 mil, 10 mil and 20 mil thicknesses in stock. Tolerances are typically ±5% across all film thicknesses—the current standard is ±20%. Maximum film width is 48". Touted as the most thermally stable high-performance polymer on the block, this amorphous film has a dimensional stability to 290°F and can withstand rapid thermocycling and re-processing without loss of properties. Higher temperatures cause the material to crystallize, though the product can be used up to 500°F continuously and is FDA approved. VICTREX USA INC., Greenville, SC. (800) 842-8739,
