Victrex has introduced a new Victrex T-Series compound called TF-60C, a blend of Victrex PEEK polymer, Celazole polybenzimidazole (PBI) and carbon fibre reinforcement.

According to Victrex, the material features one of the best overall property profiles of any high performance material, and the new carbon fibre product delivers high strength, high modulus and low creep. The materials is expected to be suited for applications in the semiconductor/electronics industries including soldering tools, cassettes, wafer transportation and chamber parts in spin coating, etching and PVD.

Mark Maddern, Global Product Manager, at Victrex, said “Introducing the TF-60C compound demonstrates Victrex’s continued commitment to manufacture premium high performance polymers to solve market demands for higher temperature and wear performance. T-Series products require no secondary processing. And, they can be recycled, improving moulding yields.”

Key features of the TF-60C compound include high temperature resistance, compressive strength, tensile and flexural performance. “When compared to other high temperature plastics, T-Series products offer a number of advantages,” said Maddern. “They boost the thermal range, especially under load, up to 260°C/288°C (500°F/550°F). In addition, they offer higher strength, excellent tribology, very low creep, low coefficient of friction and are melt processable.”
