High performance thermoplastic OXPEKK® PermettaTM films now available from OPM. Ideal for high temperature applications within electronic, semiconductor and aerospace markets.
Enfield, CT, USA (PRWEB) June 15, 2009 -- Oxford Performance Materials (OPM), part the Arkema Group, France's leading chemicals producer, has introduced OXPEKK® PermettaTM films. These new products have a wide variety of uses in aerospace, industrial, electronic and medical markets. OXPEKK® PermettaTM films offer very high thermal performance, excellent adhesion behavior, excellent abrasion resistance, along with highly selectable electrical properties. In addition, OXPEKK® PermettaTM is inherently flame retardant UL94 V-0 rated, meets OSU 65/65 and is available in medical implant grades supported by extensive ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing. Specific grades are available for long term medical implants. OXPEKK® PermettaTM also is a green product, as it enjoys the benefit of producing no volatile organic compounds when processed.
OXPEKK® PermettaTM is made from the firm's polyetherketoneketone polymer which is produced in an amorphous and crystalline form. The initial offering will include films with a width up to 393 mm and thickness from 25 to 600 microns.
Typical applications include use as an adhesive layer for composites, membrane systems, dielectric film for flex circuits and for metal composite hybrids. OXPEKK® PermettaTM is a suitable adhesive for carbon, glass, aramid, ceramic, PBO and metallic materials. As a true thermoplastic, OXPEKK® PermettaTM can be processed by nip-roll and compression molding. Target applications include aerostructures, safety protective composites, electronics, as well as soundproofing and dampening.
The OXPEKK® PermettaTM products are available in the Americas directly from OPM. In Europe the product will be made ava
