Polymer discoveries made by ICI in the 1970s led to the commercialisation of PEEK.

Pioneering work by scientists in ICI Fibres division established viable monofilament products for industrial and sports string applications
in the mid 1980s.

Zyex was trade-marked to support growing demand.

Further advances in polymer quality and melt spinning capability in the 1990s led to multifilament and finer monofilament products.

Becoming independent in 1994, manufacturing moved to Stonehouse, Gloucestershire with continuous investment in equipment, people
and technology.

In April 2017 Zyex was acquired
by Victrex plc.
