Conventus Polymers LLC, a leading distributor of high-performance engineering thermoplastics, has signed an agreement to distribute Evonik Corporation’s VESTAKEEP? polyetheretherketone (PEEK) compounds in the U.S. and Canada. The agreement covers all VESTAKEEP? PEEK industrial grades (excluding the medical and healthcare portfolio).
Conventus will sell the range of VESTAKEEP? PEEK grades for injection, extrusion, and compression moulded applications in targeted markets including wire and cable, automotive, defense, electrical, aerospace, and general industrial.
These aromatic polyetheretherketone compounds are suitable for producing long-lasting, heavy-duty, clean components for use in semiconductor production, oil exploration, automotive, and aviation sectors. VESTAKEEP? PEEK outperforms metals by improving system durability and lowering component manufacturing costs. These benefits derive from the materials’ unique combination of properties including chemical resistance, temperature resistance, abrasion resistance and lubricity, high rigidity, combined with low weight and versatile processability.
Conventus offers a highly technical focus, unique expertise, and strong relationships with key OEMs. The company’s focused approach within key end-use markets and its ability to develop new applications will be critical in expanding penetration of VESTAKEEP PEEK in the U.S. and Canada. Conventus is already a strong player in the distribution of high-temperature polymer resins and compounds within North America.
Evonik’s portfolio of PEEK compounds expands Conventus’ high-temperature portfolio which already includes PPA, PPS, PPSU, PES, PSU, and is unparalleled in the industry.
Conventus’ strategy to align its business with global industry leaders is further solidified by this agreement with Evonik. Conventus will provide all technical marketing, account management, application development, and customer service support.
