PEEK - polyetheretherketone

Compare material
Other material names PEEK : Ketron PEEK, Murpec
Material group: 

PEEK grades offer chemical and hydrolysis resistance similar to PPS, but can operate at higher temperatures. PEEK offers steam and wear resistance, while carbon-reinforced PEEK provides excellent wear capabilities. PEEK can be used continuously to 250°C and in hot water or steam without permanent loss in physical properties. For hostile environments, PEEK is a high strength alternative to fluoropolymers. PEEK carries a V-O flammability rating and exhibits very low smoke and toxic gas emission when exposed to flame.

Typical applications: 
  • vacuum wand handles during semiconductor manufacturing
  • oil field drilling, components machined from PEEK
  • ideal for instrument components where aesthetics are important
  • seal components where ductility and inertness are important
The material is used in: 
Food industry
Electrotechnical industry
Automobile industry
