Evonik to Expand its PEEK Polymer Capacity in China
Evonik Industries, Essen, Germany, is expanding its polyether ether ketone (PEEK) capacity in response to growing global demand. Along with a number of optimization measures, the company is modernizing an existing plant. The project at the Changchun site in China is scheduled to be completed by 3rd quarter 2011. The highly temperature-proof and chemical-resistant PEEK polymers (brand name: Vestakeep) are used for manufacturing components that must withstand long-term use under the most severe end-use environments.
