Victrex plc, manufacturer of high performance materials, has launched a comprehensive range of versatile, high-performance films based on Victrex PEEK polymer, called APTIV film. This new line of films will be produced at a newly-constructed film extrusion plant co-located at Victrex’s manufacturing headquarters in Thornton Cleveleys in Lancashire, UK. The GBP 5.3 million state-of-the-art facility is the world’s first high-volume film production plant dedicated to producing Victrex PEEK film.
According to the company, the APTIV film production line is custom-designed and has a unique combination of outstanding standard equipment and proprietary design features, including a custum-designed extruder, roll stack and winder.
APTIV films can be manufactured in widths up to 1.5 meters and at a thickness ranging from 6 to 750 microns.
