PEEK Machining, Properties & Components
What is PEEK?
PEEK (Polyaryletheretherketone) is a rigid opaque (beige) engineering plastic known for its ability to operate at high temperatures, together with its exceptional chemical and wear resistance and dimensional stability.
A high purity polymer, PEEK is a plastic composed of repeating monomers of two ether groups and a ketone group.
Main Attributes of PEEK:
- Impressive durability - exceptional chemical, electrical and temperature resistence
- Excellent mechanical properties maintained to high temperatures
- Dimensional stability
- Very low moisture absorption
- Flame retardant
- High impact strength
