Victrex has formed a partnership with Holst Centre, an independent Dutch R&D center, to develop Victrex’ PEEK polyarylether­ketone for flexible electronics. Signing of the pact follows a feasibility study that, according to the partners, showed the potential of PEEK film as a substrate for flexible electronics. Compared with other thermoplastics, PEEK can withstand higher processing temperatures, Victrex says.
