The LUVOCOM 8000 series of PEEK wear compounds from Lehvoss North America incorporates proprietary additives that further elevate the wear resistance of PEEK compounds. Though it is well known that in thermoplastic materials PTFE lowers wear rates, it is not always recognized that it also decreases mechanical properties of the compound. Through research and testing, Lehvoss designed the LUVOCOM 8000 product line to have a tribological profile significantly surpassing previously known materials while also preserving mechanical performance. In one case study, thrust washers and bushings were tested with results showing up to three times lower wear rate of the LUVOCOM 8000 series when compared to an industry standard PEEK compound lubricated with PTFE.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
