APC (PEKK)/AS4D

Product functions: Medium Service Temperature (70°C to 150°C)
APC (PEKK-FC) Solvay’s APC (PEKK-FC) composites consist of a thermoplastic matrix of poly (ether-ketone-ketone) commonly referred to as PEKK-FC polymer with aligned, continuous unidirectional fiber reinforcement. The tapes are fully impregnated with a tailored fiber-matrix interface for optimal performance. Solvay also supplies custom laminates made from the tapes. The polymer is semi-crystalline with a glass transition temperature of 318°F (159°C). APC (PEKK-FC) composites possess outstanding flame, smoke, and toxicity performance. They also have high toughness and damage tolerance. Laminates and parts can be fabricated from APC (PEKK-FC) using a wide range of techniques including autoclave and press molding. Typical applications for Solvay’s APC (PEKK-FC) include aircraft structure, space components, and other transportation & structural engineering components. Features and Benefits Semi-crystalline, thermoplastic matrix Fully impregnated, unidirectional tape High toughness and damage tolerance Structural properties Tg of 318°F (159°C) Low moisture uptake ( <0.3 % by wt.1) Manufacture parts using affordable non-autoclave processes Outstanding FST2 and OSU3 heat release properties Good resistance to a wide range of fluid environments Indefinite shelf life at room temperature Recyclable
