PEEK: Material Properties for Uncompromised Performance

PEEK is a high-performance material that engineers across numerous industries rely on for its exceptional combination of properties.

  • Superior Strength and Stability: PEEK offers outstanding mechanical strength, ensuring components can withstand demanding loads and maintain dimensional stability even in harsh environments. 
  • Thermal Endurance: PEEK excels in high-heat environments. With a continuous use temperature of up to 500°F (260°C), PEEK is a reliable choice for applications exposed to extreme temperatures.
  • Chemical Resistance: PEEK exhibits exceptional resistance to a broad spectrum of chemicals, including harsh fluids and solvents. This makes it the perfect choice for applications exposed to aggressive environments.
  • Biocompatible Potential: Certain grades of PEEK are biocompatible, making them suitable for medical applications like implants and devices.
  • Electrical Efficiency: PEEK boasts high dielectric strength and low dissipation factor. This combination makes it ideal for electrical components, ensuring efficient performance and minimal signal loss.

Applications of PEEK Machined Components

PEEK's unique blend of properties translate into a wide range of applications across diverse industries:

Aerospace

The aerospace industry utilizes PEEK components because they offer an impressive strength-to-weight ratio and exceptional resistance to radiation and chemicals. They can also endure extreme temperatures. Bearings, seals, and structural parts are all examples of PEEK products utilized in aerospace.

Automotive

PEEK components are commonly used in the automotive industry due to their remarkable ability to resist heat, chemicals, and wear. Automotive applications of PEEK components include engine parts, fuel system parts, and electrical connectors.

Electronics

PEEK has a high dielectric strength, which means it can withstand high voltages without breaking down or losing its insulating properties. It also has a low dissipation factor for an efficient transfer of electrical energy without losing any power as heat. This makes it ideal for manufacturing electrical connectors, switches, and insulators.

Industrial

The material’s superior chemical resistance, high-temperature stability, and excellent wear resistance make it a practical choice for industrial manufacturers. As a result, it is frequently used in pumps, valves, seals, and other parts and products constantly exposed to aggressive chemicals or high temperatures.

Medical

Biocompatible grades of PEEK play a vital role in the medical field. Due to their excellent strength, biocompatibility, and inherent resistance to wear, biocompatible PEEK grades are used in medical implants and devices.
