As an extension of the recent launch of its VICTREX Pipes™ product family, Victrex Polymer Solutions (VPS), the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance polyaryletherketones (PAEK), has announced its new "microsite," http://www.victrexpipes.com. As pipe applications are required to perform in increasingly demanding conditions engineers are challenged to develop solutions that offer enhanced performance. To do so, they are searching for new online resources that offer innovative material solutions and quick access to experts that can solve their pipe application development needs.
The website functions as a convenient resource to learn about pipe and tubing products extruded from high performance VICTREX® PEEK™ polymer. The site showcases the many benefits of VICTREX Pipes, which offer an excellent alternative to metals and other polymers in a broad range of markets and applications. The site also enables direct contact with technically skilled members of the pipes team.
Representing the latest advances in both material and manufacturing technology, VICTREX Pipes open up a host of new application opportunities in demanding operating conditions found in the oil and gas, industrial and aerospace sectors. The ability of VICTREX Pipes to withstand high temperatures, corrosive conditions and aggressive chemical environments opens up new opportunities to increase asset availability and reliability in the increasingly harsh conditions in today’s oil and gas industry and demanding industrial environments. In the aerospace sector, manufacturers are increasingly driven by the need to design lightweight, optimally fuel-efficient aircraft, and VICTREX Pipes, as a lightweight alternative to metals, offer the potential for significant weight reduction.
The microsite at http://www.victrexpipes.com has been designed to inform users about the exceptional properties and benefits of the VICTREX Pipes family and how they can help solve specific challenges within a given industry. It offers access to Victrex’s comprehensive library of technical literature and datasheets, which reflects over 30 years’ experience in high performance PAEK polymers.
The new microsite is an informative, “go-to” resource that will be of immediate interest to key decision makers, designers, engineers and OEMs who need to replace metals and other polymers in order to reduce downtime, weight and system cost, and extend the performance envelope of their application.
