AKROTEK® PEEK Engineering Plastic


PEEK Polyetheretherketone – Metal Replacement for Critical Applications

Performance Thermoplastic Solutions

Part of the polyaryletherketone (PAEK) group of polymers, polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a colorless organic thermoplastic polymer that exhibits excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties, even at high temperatures. It also possesses excellent insulation and electrical resistance properties as well as low moisture and flammability. One of the most versatile materials on the market, PEEK can be injection and compression moulded, extruded, thermoformed, sprayed or machined.

High Performance Properties

PEEK’s outstanding properties include high continuous operating temperature (above 242° C), excellent room temperature properties, very good chemical resistance, inherent V0 to UL 94, good radiation resistance, excellent hydrolysis resistance, extremely good impact strength, minimal creep and an extremely low outgassing rate.

PEEK for Demanding Applications

First produced commercially in the early 1980s, PEEK is now used in demanding engineering applications across a range of sectors, most notably aerospace, automotive and chemicals. Thanks to its strength and durability, it is also increasingly being used as a replacement for metal in the manufacture of products such as aircraft and engine components, medical implants and scientific equipment.
