Specific properties

PEEK TX / PEEK TX FG This material from the PEEK family is specifically developed for use in food manufacturing. Like PEEK 1000, this material is modified for increased abrasion resistance and wear resistance and has an approval for contact with food. The material is especially suitable for use as a bearing material and abrasion surface in the temperature range from + 100 ° C to + 200ºC.
