Solution-based and geared towards target industries, Victrex’s new website is now available at www.victrex.com.
According to Victrex it enables visitors to quickly and selectively access detailed information, save documents to their personal library and share data with colleagues. Clear messages, complemented by a fresh, modern design join forces to deliver a unique digital experience.
Victrex explains the new website will showcase its Victrex PAEK polymers. They are often used as a metal replacement as they have a very high performance capability, and can be up to 70% lighter. In the aerospace or automotive industry, the company states they help to improve fuel efficiency or enable the implementation of simpler designs which may reduce installation times.
“The demand for innovative material solutions is increasing across all industries, from automotive and aerospace to the energy, electronics and medical sectors. Our aim is to generate added value for customers by providing the right Victrex PAEK solution for their demanding requirements”, explains Ian Smith, Head of Marketing at Victrex. “The new website is an effective platform to share our PAEK polymer expertise as well as testimonials from industry leaders highlighting the benefits they see in working with Victrex to solve their toughest challenges”, he adds.
According to Victrex, an exciting and useful feature on the new Victrex.com is My Victrex. This allows visitors to create a personal library of literature, datasheets and whitepapers for future use. In addition to My Victrex, useful sharing functions are integrated to facilitate information sharing through social media or across large organisations.
The company says the site is designed to outline the continuing developments and escalating material demands of the key markets which the company serves. It also highlights applications in which metals and other polymers have been successfully replaced with VICTREX PEEK solutions to enhance performance.
The new website also has links through to the Company’s corporate site, which includes information and opportunities for prospective employees, details on the Group’s sustainability policy and activity, governance policies, as well as financial and corporate announcements and presentations.
