Improved PEEK Wear Compounds
Lehvoss North America, a subsidiary of Lehmann & Voss, has introduced LUVOCOM 8000, a new series of PEEK wear compounds. By substituting traditionally used PTFE with new proprietary additives, the company has made it possible to further elevate the wear resistance of PEEK compounds.
Though it is well known that in thermoplastic materials PTFE lowers wear rates, it is not always recognized that it also decreases mechanical properties of the compound. Through research and testing, Lehvoss designed the new LUVOCOM 8000 product line to have a tribological profile significantly surpassing previously known materials while also preserving mechanical performance.
