AvaSpire® PAEK

Customized High-Performance Polyketones

AvaSpire® PAEK (polyaryletherketone) is a family of high-performance polyketones tailored to fill cost and performance gaps between PEEK and other high-performance polymers. For example, ductility and toughness can be significantly improved versus comparable grades of PEEK, delivering 20% higher tensile elongation at yield and double tensile elongation at break values.

Why AvaSpire® PAEK?

  • Higher stiffness from 150 °C to 190 °C
    (302 °F to 374 °F)
  • Improved ductility and toughness
  • Outstanding chemical resistance
  • UL-94 V0 rating at 0.8 mm
  • Comparable strength and stiffness at up to 30% lower cost
  • Excellent aesthetics and colorability
