HOUSTON, TX – Drake Plastics LTD Co. is pleased to announce they currently have available inventory of Victrex CT™ 200 with short lead-times. “As companies grapple with global supply chain issues that are hindering both productivity and output, we are excited to offer Victrex CT™ 200 as a local, made in the U.S.A. polymer solution that is ready for immediate use,” said Steven Quance, President of Drake Plastics LTD Co.

With the global supply chain still experiencing significant delays, materials like PCTFE or KEL-F are out of stock. Despite this challenge, demand for the material has not waned. In response to this problem, Drake Plastics has begun extrusion of Victrex CT™ 200, which is an innovative and reliable polymer at cryogenic temperatures while maintaining the same characteristics that have made PEEK famous.

“At a time when companies are still recovering from shutdowns that occurred during the pandemic, we want to equip them to keep working at quality levels without regard to material shortages or crippling supply chain issues. Therefore, in partnership with Victrex, Drake has begun extruding stock shapes as a domestic answer to a global problem. Drake is proud to support the national economy as well as the thousands of businesses that rely on undisrupted access to this material, regardless of world events,” concluded Quance.
