Zeus Expands Drawn Fiber Capabilities

February 16, 2010

ORANGEBURG, S.C., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ — Zeus, Inc., a global leader in material science and high performance polymer extrusions, has expanded its drawn fiber capabilities to include PFA, FEP, ETFE, and other polymers. This product line expansion will result in enormous benefits for manufacturers around the world and allow more flexibility and options in regard to aerospace, semiconductor, and chemical applications. For more information, visit http://www.zeusinc.com.

The enhanced product offering creates an arsenal of fibers that have diverse properties, such as abrasion resistance, chemical inertness, and optical clarity. Zeus’ standard product line of drawn fiber includes the following polymers, but customized fibers can be developed upon request:

  • PEEK Drawn Fiber is a high-tensile, abrasion-resistant fiber that is commonly used in wire harness and hose braiding applications. The high tensile strength, coupled with the light weight of PEEK Fiber, make it an ideal material for aerospace applications.
  • PFA Drawn Fiber is capable of continuous service at 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). PFA Fiber is commonly used to make meshes and filters for semiconductor applications where its purity and resistance to chemical attack ensure a long service life in aggressive environments.
  • FEP Drawn Fiber is a very robust material that can be used to make mist eliminating filters and screens for harsh chemical environments where other materials would fail. With a luminous transmittance of 96%, FEP is the most optically clear performance fiber available.
  • ETFE Drawn Fiber is the fiber of choice for applications that require superior mechanical toughness and chemical inertness. Its radiation resistance allows for repeated Gamma sterilization without any adverse effect on its mechanical properties.
