Guzman Polymers: Your Gateway to Excellence as Official Distributors of Victrex!

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone at Guzman Polymers – we are now the official distributors of Victrex, a world leader in PEEK and PAEK-based polymer solutions.

Unveiling VICTREX PEEK: A High-Performance Marvel

At the heart of this partnership is our flagship product, VICTREX PEEK. This high-performance polymer isn’t just a material; it’s a revolutionary solution that can be processed on conventional thermoplastic equipment, redefining possibilities across various industries.

Versatility Redefined:

  • Form Options: VICTREX PEEK is available in unfilled and filled grades, presented in granules, powder, or ultra-fine powder.
  • Applications: Granules prove their mettle in injection moulding, extrusion, monofilament, and wire coating operations. Powder takes center stage for compression moulding, while ultra-fine powders excel in coating processes and composite pre-preg manufacture.

Partnering with Victrex: A Timeline of Innovation

Our collaboration with Victrex, a pioneer in polymer solutions, is backed by a rich history of innovation and industry leadership. Let’s take a glimpse at Victrex’s journey:

  • 1978: Polyketone (PEEK) patent filed by ICI in August, with the first manufacturing batch on November 19, 1978.
  • 1981: Commercialization of the VICTREX™ PEEK polymer family, including glass- and carbon-filled products.
  • 1987: Production starts at a new 1,000-tonnes-per-annum manufacturing plant.
