Mumbai/India - This collaborative development with other industrial partners is aimed at applications that require very high wear resistance. The G-PAEK product family is based on Poly Ether Ketone (PEK) and GAZOLE - representing freshly commercialized thermoplastic alloys of PEK and Poly benzimidazole (PBI)
On this background, the company plans to open a commercial scale plant in Panoli for making specialized engineering resins polyetherketone, polyetheretherketone and polybenzimidazole, using a new production method. The company will decide final capacity and investment details later this year, and is aiming for an April 2015 startup for the new facility.
