It’s time to rethink metal

Victrex Gear Solutions include high-precision gear design, prototyping, testing and manufacturing capabilities using VICTREX HPG™ polymers that help our customers gain a competitive advantage while focusing on their core strength.

The automotive powertrain is quickly becoming electrified. In the new automotive world where efficient powertrains, increased range, faster charging, and superior customer experiences in a cost-effective way are required automotive designers are looking to VICTREX™ PEEK to demonstrate superior benefits to traditional solutions.


When the going gets rough, the tough get going. In the most demanding environments where temperatures, friction, parasitic losses and loads are high, fluids are aggressive and NVH becomes an issue – that’s where VICTREX™ PEEK polymer solutions and VICTREX HPG™ gears can provide considerable benefits.
