The Polymer Innovation Center is co-located at Victrex's UK headquarters.

Victrex has opened its new £10 million Polymer Innovation Center for development of next generation thermoplastic solutions.

Co-located at the company's UK headquarters, the new center will function as an enabler for rapid prototyping of new parts and components with novel polyaryletherketone (PAEK) materials, helping to advance composites technology and 3D printing.

Victrex is currently leading a consortium backed by Innovate UK to focus on 3D printing.

"We continue to expand our PAEK-based portfolio, services and technologies into new markets and new applications. This new facility is another important step for us, particularly as we anticipate around 10-20% of our overall sales will come from new differentiated PAEK polymer grades and our mega-programs in the medium term," said Jakob Sigurdsson, the new CEO at Victrex.

The center is expected to deliver 30-70kg batch manufacture of novel PAEK.

After a three year planning and construction phase, the Polymer Innovation Center was recently completed and with funding, totaling some £1.3 million, provided by the UK's Regional Growth Fund.
