PEEK engineering plastic is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance, capable of maintaining its properties at high temperatures. The processing conditions used to shape PEEK may influence its crystallinity and improve mechanical properties. Being a high performance plastic, it is applicable to almost every industry branch.
PEEK plastics offer high temperature resistance, exceptional resistance to chemicals, wear and abrasion, good radiation resistance, low emission of toxic gases and little smoke, and excellent resistance to hot vapor generated by hydrolysis.
Hot vapors resistance
The essential engineering plastic for high performance engines.
It has a wide range of applications in the machinery and textile industry, engine and automobile production, chemical and nuclear technology, transportation and cargo handling segments, as well as in the air and space industries. It can be used in the manufacture of surgical instrument parts, short-term implants, electronic isolators and connectors, mechanical compressor components, among others.
PEEK is often seen as a very expensive engineering plastic, but experienced users realize the added value that PEEK materials bring by offering the ability to manufacture lighter, stronger parts that can survive longer in harsh environments.
