High performance polymers

The material makes
the difference

In current times, new technology always poses new requirements for the materials to be used. Whilst high-performance polymers still were a speciality a few years ago, they have long since become established in the constructors’ standard repertoire. STASSKOL has concentrated on particularly high performance materials. Here, we can name some examples such as polyaryletherketones like PEEK, PEK and PEKEKK, PTFE as well as modified PTFE and also polyimides, polyamid-imide and polyphenylene sulphide which are characterised by a constant use temperature in excess of 150 °C.

PTFE Recycling

Re:think Waste

While the recycling of thermoplastic materials has been used in practice for decades, the recycling of PTFE was previously considered unfeasible. The reason for this is the processing of PTFE in the press-sintering process, as plasticising the materials is not possible due to the high molecular weight. In the press-sintering process, the smallest grain sizes are required (d50 < 50 mm) in order to compact the material sufficiently and to achieve the target properties. STASSKOL has been working on the recycling of these materials for about 10 years and has now developed a process to successfully recycle PTFE. For this purpose, waste that accumulates in the form of chips during the manufacture of the products is collected by type and crushed and ground in a 2-step process. The resulting powder can be mixed into the virgin material and fed back into the product cycle. A positive side effect: the mechanical and tribological properties of the PTFE with recyclate content are even improved by the double heat treatment compared to the pure virgin material. The recycling of PFAS materials is an important step towards relieving the environment and reducing the consumption of resources.

Innovation & development

We push the boundaries of what is feasible

The quality of our semi-finished products has top priority for us and forms the basis for the use of our materials, both at our customers’ and when we manufacture our own products. STASSKOL goes far beyond pure quality testing. All measured data is collected and evaluated regularly in order to adapt processes and procedures within the scope of a continuous improvement process. Thus we manage to achieve the continuous improvement of the quality of our products.
