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
