Syensqo (Solvay Specialty Polymers) AvaSpire® AV-722 SL30 Polyaryletherketone (PAEK), Very good wear resistance
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyketone

Material Notes: Very good wear resistance, dry and lubricated, low melt flow for extrusion and injection molding

AV-722 SL30 is a wear resistant grade of AvaSpire® polyaryletherketone (PAEK) designed to provide low wear rates in both non-lubricated and lubricated environments. In addition to the outstanding wear resistance, the resin also offers the outstanding combination of ultra performance attributes commonly known for PEEK. These include: chemical resistance, mechanical strength and stiffness, even at elevated temperatures, as well as long-term and high-temperature thermal-oxidative stability. AV-722 SL30 is formulated with the ternary anti-friction/anti-wear additive system comprised of carbon fiber, graphite, and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE.) It offers wear resistance performance comparable to PEEK grades with this modifier system while being more cost-effective.

This resin is a low melt flow (high viscosity) grade designed for use in injection molding of less intricate shapes or parts. By virtue of its high viscosity at low shear rates, the resin has high melt strength, and, as such, is extrudable into stock shapes such as rods, pipe, tubing and profile. The resin can be melt processed using conventional equipment and techniques.

Potential applications for AV-722 SL30 include bushings, bearings, wear strips, wear rings, rollers, and other parts or components where sliding friction is encountered. The resin is black in color in its natural state.
