Quandrant’s Ketron GF30 PEEK has been chosen by an end user requiring a radio transparent material for random covers on their aircraft, which were required to have dimensional stability to withstand constant temperature fluctuations.

The end user’s aircraft is loaded at temperatures exceeding 35°C, before flying a northern route and being subjected to sub-zero temperatures

For this application, the end user required a plastic that can handle radio transparency while holding tolerance in a changing environment.

High chemical resistance, for occurrences such as de-icing, as well as low moisture adsorption, to withstand all weathers, were also deciding factors.

Key benefits of product application

  • Ketron GF30 PEEK showed itself to have high chemical resistance, as well as low moisture absorption.
  • The plastic also had inherently good wear and abrasion resistance.
  • It was also unaffected by continuous exposure to hot water or steam.
