In 2010, our Research & Development lab launched the Arylmax® K polymer in order to provide a material that would excel in temperatures too high for standard PEEK material.

Recently, we have begun development of Arylmax® P (PAEK) with our partners CCP, which will perform at even higher temperatures than Arylmax® K. Both resins can be customized to meet the requirements of any application.

Arylmax® K   (PEKK)

Polymics currently manufactures and offers Arylmax® K (PEKK) in resin form. This new polymer family is distinguished by its ability to outperform PEEK at higher temperatures making it a great material selection for high-performance applications in high-temperature environments, such as down-hole components and valve seats. For more information, please view our Arylmax® K datasheets.

Properties of Arylmax® K

  • Glass transition temperature (Tg) of 329-347°F (165-175°C)(higher than PEEK)

  • Melting temperature (Tm) of 581-698°F (305-370°C)
    (Higher than PEEK)
  • Excellent performance in aggressive environments (high temperature, high pressure)
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Forms alloy with most commercial high temperature plastics
  • Electrophilic displacement reaction at low temperatures

Arylmax® P   (PAEK)

This high-performance polymer is able to perform in temperatures even higher than those of Arylmax® K (PEKK), enabling customers reduce the amount of coolants and protective design measures in applications. This results in reduced costs and increased production. For more information, please view our Arylmax® P datasheets.

Properties of Arylmax® P

  • Glass transition temperature (Tg) of 383°F-473°F (195–245°C) (highest of any semi-crystalline polymer)
