Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) stands out as a high-performance thermoplastic polymer renowned for its exceptional properties. With a continuous operating temperature of 480°F (250°C), it surpasses PPS in thermal resilience. Unreinforced, PEEK showcases robust wear resistance, making it ideal for continuous use in diverse industrial applications. Its chemical resistance extends to aggressive substances, and it remains structurally sound in hot water or steam. PEEK is a preferred choice in hostile environments, offering high strength as an alternative to fluoropolymers. Notably, it carries a V-O flammability rating, ensuring safety, and emits minimal smoke and toxic gases under flame exposure. This lightweight material finds extensive use in aerospace, automotive, medical, and electronics, excelling in components like gears, bearings, and medical implants. Its biocompatibility makes it suitable for medical applications, and its ease of processing enables versatile manufacturing methods. PEEK is a cornerstone in engineering solutions, combining thermal resistance, chemical resilience, and mechanical strength.
