GAPEKK – Polyether Ketone Ketone
GAPEKKTM combines high temperature stability, strength, stiffness and ease of processing. PEKK has superior temperature resistance than other Ketone base polymers (PEK & PEEK). It has excellent compressive strength, creep resistance, wear and radiation resistance and also inherent flame retardancy.
With a glass transition temperature of 176°C and a melting temperature of 395°C, GAPEKKTM polymer delivers extended high temperature mechanical performance over standard PEKK polymer and chemical resistance. Available as unfilled, glass filled and carbon filled grades.
G-PAEK – Polyether Ketone
Gharda’s G-PAEK product family is based on Polyether Ketone (PEK), a semi-crystalline polymer, with a high glass transition temperature of 152°C and melting temperature of 372°C, the unfilled G-PAEK grades offer solutions to many high temperature and chemically resistant applications.
Additionally, we offer various value-added filled grades with improved strength for demanding opportunities that require high wear resistance. The heat deflection temperature of these grades can be as high as 360°C, providing strength and stability in extreme conditions. The array of Gharda G-PAEK product family provides a wide range of options to customers along with customized solutions wherever required.
Unfilled grades are available as powders or pellets. Filled grades are available as dry blends and compounded pellets.
GAZOLE – Polybenzimidazole
GAZOLETM 6000 series are thermoplastic alloys of (PBI, poly (2, 5-benzimidazole)) and G-PAEKTM (Poly ether ketone), with very high thermal and chemical stability. It is recommended for making injection moulded and extruded parts with superior strength and quality.
