AvaSpire® PAEK 

AvaSpire® resin is a versatile family of polyaryletherketones (PAEK) that are tailored to provide new and unique combinations of performance and value. The AV-600 Series delivers a range of distinctive performance attributes with some grades offering more attractive economics when compared to PEEK. The AV-700 Series offers comparable performance to PEEK at up to 30% lower cost.

AV-600 Series: Distinctive Performance

Key Features

  • Higher stiffness than PEEK from 150°C to 190°C
  • Improved ductility and toughness
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • UL 94 V0 rating at 0.8 mm
  • Excellent aesthetics and colorability

AvaSpire 600 Series

Avaspire AV-600 Series
Unreinforced Grades
AvaSpire AV-651 Better ductility and higher HDT than comparable PEEK, high melt flow for injection molding
AvaSpire AV-630 Optimized for ultra-thin film thicknesses down to 5 microns, low melt flow
AvaSpire AV-621 Highest performing unreinforced AvaSpire grade, tough, better ductility and higher HDT
than comparable PEEK, low melt flow for extrusion and injection molding
Reinforced Grades
AvaSpire AV-650 GF30 30% glass fiber, better dimensional stability than AV-621, high melt flow for injection molding
AvaSpire AV-651 GF30 30% glass fiber, better chemical resistance than AV-621, high melt flow for injection molding
AvaSpire AV-651 CF30 30% carbon fiber, high melt flow for injection molding
AvaSpire AV-621 GF30 30% glass fiber, low melt flow for extrusion and injection molding
AvaSpire AV-621 CF30 30% carbon fiber, low melt flow for extrusion and injection molding

Mechanical Performance at High Temperature

Higher Stiffness than PEEK from 150°C to 190°C (302°F to 374°F)

AvaSpire AV-651 has a modulus twice that of unfilled PEEK at 180°C (356°F) and AV-651 GF30 is 30% higher than comparable PEEK material at this same temperature.

Improved Ductility and Toughness

Compared to unfilled PEEK, unfilled AvaSpire 600 Series products exhibit 20% higher tensile elongation at yield. Tensile elongation at break values are at least twice as high as comparable PEEK grades.

Improved Flame Retardancy

Improved Flame Retardancy enables unfilled AvaSpire 600 Series products to attain a UL 94 V0 rating at 0.8 mm.

AvaSpire AV-621 (Unfilled) V-0 V-0 V-0
AvaSpire AV-650 GF30 (30% glass) V-0 V-0 V-0
Unfilled PEEK V-0 V-0 V-1

Chemical Resistance

AV-600 products offer chemical resistance that is better than PEI, with most grades being nearly equivalent to that of PEEK.
