The industry’s first PEEK cut-sheet product for thermoforming has been introduced by Ensinger/Penn Fibre, Bensalem, Pa. Target applications include semiconductor-processing parts, sterilizable medical trays, and electronic antenna housings. Tecapeek VF, made of Victrex PEEK resin from Victrex USA Inc., West Conshohocken, Pa., fills the gap between 0.8-mm roll-fed PEEK film and 5-mm extruded plate. Sheet is available in thicknesses of 1 to 3 mm and widths up to 24 in. It can be processed on standard machines, although higher temperature is required (up to the melt temperature of 650 F).

    New cost-effective technologies are designed to make aluminum an attractive alternative to tool steels in a range of plastics molding processes. One method uses a plasma technique to convert the aluminum surface into a hard, dense, wear-resistant ceramic. Another approach uses electro-deposition to apply a surface coating with high hardness, corrosion resistance, and chemical resistance.
