Polyketones

What are Polyketones?

Polyketones are highly symmetrical semi-crystalline thermoplastic technologies, exhibiting high performance characteristics that are maintained at high temperatures with extreme resistance to chemicals. Polymerization of this product, with the need of rare and expensive Palladium catalyst, has a small window of success.

The Americhem Advantage in Polyketones

Americhem has experience compounding PEEK to yield consistent pellet geometry and maximize performance. We are able to provide a wide range of formulations with one or multiple fillers in one compound.  Due to PEEK’s cost, Americhem can provide custom formulations in smaller MOQs than most of the industry, as well as long campaigns for larger volume applications.
