APTIV® 2100 series films are the mineral filled amorphous films made from VICTREX® PEEK polymer. The film provides a material solution for engineers in ultra-high performance applications.
APTIV films are a comprehensive range of versatile, high-performance films, the use of which can facilitate reduced systems costs, improved performance and enhanced design freedom.
APTIV 2100 has a unique combination of properties providing high temperature performance, lightweight, mechanical strength, durability, excellent radiation, hydrolysis and chemical resistance, electrical insulation, excellent barrier properties with high purity, good flammability without the use of flame retardants, low toxicity of combustion products, and low moisture absorption in a film format.
Inherently halogen-free and ease of processing makes APTIV films a technology enabler for our customers and end users. APTIV 2100 series provides a higher modulus over the APTIV 2000 series amorphous films. This grade is tailored towards thermoforming of thin wall parts with higher modulus, such as speaker diaphragms.
Please note - APTIV 2100 will crystallise if taken above the Tg [143°C (289°F)] in either secondary processes or end use application. The crystallisation is not reversible back to the amorphous phase without remelting the material. Consideration of the temperature range during processing and end use application needs to be included if selecting APTIV 2100.
