PEEK - Polyetheretherketone
Polyetheretherketone, PEEK, is a high-performance engineered plastic that is uniquely suited to extreme environments. It is commonly used to make machined parts like bearings and other high-wear components, such as bushings, seals, and backup rings.
PEEK offers performance similar to that of PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) plastic, but can operate at higher temperatures—up to 480°F (249°C) in continuous use. Virgin or unfilled PEEK is naturally abrasion resistant and exhibits high chemical and hydrolysis resistance. PEEK produces very little smoke or toxic fumes when exposed to flame, and carries a V-O flame rating.
Thanks to its excellent wear resistance and its ability to withstand continuous exposure to extreme temperatures, hot water, and steam, PEEK is a popular choice in the medical device and life sciences industries, where plastics must undergo autoclave sterilization. PEEK is also common in oil and gas industry applications where parts in deep downhole environments must withstand extreme temperatures, chemicals, and moisture.
