PEEK

PEEK – Polyetheretherketone

PEEK is a unique high performance engineering plastic which offers excellent mechanical strength, dimensional stability, sliding properties and wear resistance making it an excellent material for those tight tolerance parts.

PEEK is particularly known for it’s high temperature resistance of 250 deg C continuously and 310 deg C for short periods. But also retaining it’s mechanical properties as far longer than other engineering plastics as the temperature increases.

PEEK also has excellent chemical resistance which exceeds most other plastics.
