These products work well for applications requiring a balance of chemical resistance and mechanical strength in high temperature environments like those frequently found in the oil and gas, chemical processing, and semiconductor industries.

“We are proud to be a pioneer in introducing the largest size stock shapes in the industry”, said Kathleen Cerchio, Director of Sales at Quantum Polymers. “This first-time availability of 8 inch diameter rods in glass and carbon fiber filled PEEK demonstrates our culture of constant innovation and continuous improvement.”

Extruded stock shapes from Quantum Polymers are offered when close-tolerance machined parts are required. Quantum’s excellent quality is due to manufacturing equipment that has been optimized for the complexities of high performance polymer extrusion. Extruded rods, tubes and plates manufactured in their Newark, DE plant are porosity free, which is especially critical for uniformity in thick cross sections and flawless machining. Quantum’s proprietary annealing techniques result in machined parts with no residual stress.

“It is refreshing to see the approach that Quantum Polymers is taking in providing high quality and innovative high performance polymers in shapes previously unavailable to our market”, says Randy White, President and CEO of Piper Plastics Inc.
