Polyether ether ketone / PEEK
is a high-tech semi-crystalline polymer. He has a very high temperature continuous operation (+ 260 ° C), but in contrast to other high temperature plastic - Fluorines 4, PEEK is stable in size and retains most of the original characteristics at high temperatures. PEEK may briefly be operated at higher temperatures (up to + 300 ° C). It is difficult to find a scope, which would Polyetheretherketone would not be effective and in demand.
The material has excellent tribological characteristics, including at high working speeds. One of the main distinctive features of other thermoplastics PEEK that it maintains its active excellent mechanical properties, rigidity and creep resistance even at high temperatures, while exposure to chemicals and high pressure.
Due to such a high strength and durability PEEK rods and PEEK sheeets are often used where required reliability and guarantee of security (for example, in equipment on drilling platforms). The unique high tensile strength and flexural fatigue strength for the alternating cycle (high strength and fatigue resistance).
