Kadel® Polyketones have outstanding high temperature resistance (above 500°F / 260°C), exceptional chemical resistance, excellent mechanical properties, and high PV wear resistance. They provide a wide range of cost/performance options.

Typical Kadel® applications include chemical processing, aviation and aerospace composites, compressor parts, bearings and seals, wire and cable coatings, and wear rings.

NOTE: Kadel has been discontinued by the manufacturer, but contact us for information about Solvay's replacement product, AvaSpire 621 PAEK.
