Four Ways Polyketone Polymers Can Improve Gear Performance


Historically, the most commonly specified resins for plastic gears have been acetal (POM), nylon (PA 66) and polyester (PBT), with or without modifiers (PTFE, carbon fiber, glass fiber, silicone or combinations thereof) to reduce friction and wear. Polyketone offers engineers four distinct advantages relative to other materials in meeting design challenges: 1) superior wear properties, 2) better dimensional control / stability, 3) superior creep rupture performance, and 4) quieter operation.
