Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is used in applications where there are high demands on dimensional stability, strength and fatigue resistance and a low risk of fire at elevated temperatures.
Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) with the trade name Ketron® offers chemical and hydrolysis resistance similar to PPS, but can operate at higher temperatures. PEEK 1000 offers vapor and wear resistance, while carbon-reinforced PEEK provides excellent wear properties.
The latest quality is PEEK HPV which offers outstanding bearing performance. PEEK can be used continuously up to 250°C (480°F) and in hot water or steam without permanent loss of physical properties. For extreme environments, PEEK is a high-strength alternative to fluoropolymers. PEEK is UV-94 VO rated and exhibits very low smoke and toxic gas emissions when exposed to flame.
PEEK is suitable in the space, aviation and defense industries, and LSG/FG qualities are suitable in the medical technology and food technology industries.
