Polyketone High-Performance Thermoplastic Polymer

Good Chemical Resistance

Polyketone (PK) is a high-performance thermoplastic polymer with a high melting point. This is the result of polar ketone groups in the polymer backbone creating a strong attraction between polymer chains. Polyketone (PK) meets the demands of a wide range of applications and has been enjoying somewhat of a renaissance thanks to its environmental credentials relative to other polymers. This is due to co-monomer CO (carbon monoxide) in the structure of the polyketone. An industrial “waste” gas which can contribute to global warming, it bonds with a polymer to form a highly favourable monomer.

Polyketone Applications

Popular applications for polyketone include gear wheels, valves, bearings, fuel lines and filters, quick connectors, switches and housings. It is most commonly found in the manufacturing, automotive and electrical sectors.

High-Performance Thermoplastic Polymers

Polyketone has several properties which no other polymer has in this combination. Freshly injection-moulded polyketone has the greatest yield strain (over 30 %) compared to all other semi-crystalline polymers, virtually independently of moisture. This tremendous elasticity gives many components made of PK a high degree of safety in the design phase.
