PEEK

Polyetheretherketone - High Tech plastic for industry

PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is a high tech plastic material that can withstand extreme temperatures and is highly structural stable.

Linatex has extensive experience working with PEEK, which is a difficult material to work with.

PEEK can be supplied with food approved in conjunction with food contact, upon request.

Trade names of raw materials and semi-finished products:

  • Victrex®
  • Sustapeek®
  • Zedex®
  • Ketron®

  • KetaSpire®

Linatex supplies both semi-finished and finished products, as required. Documentation for quality and short delivery times makes Linatex a good partner.

What is PEEK used for

Application temperature usually from -60 ° C up to 250 ° C.
Density usually approx. 1.30-1.51 g / cm 2

PEEK is a high-tech thermoplastic with unique properties for components where strength, chemical and heat resistance are essential requirements.

PEEK is form stable and maintains its excellent bending and tensile strength at high temperatures, is durable and durable even at 250 ° C. The material is resistant to most organic and inorganic acids and hydrolysis resistance is exceptional even in hot water. The electrical properties are good at 200 ° C.

PEEK can be machined with conventional machines and can replace metals and other materials.

PEEK is used as printed circuit boards and components of the electrical industry where high temperatures occur.

PEEK is supplied as rods, pipes and sheets as well as granules for injection molding.

Advantages:

  • High Temperature Resistance (UL Index 220 ° C)
  • Very good dimensional stability
  • Low flammability (UL94 V-0)
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Hydrolysis Resistant
  • Resists radiation
  • Very low water absorption

Limitations:

Attacked by sulfuric acid.

Skirt at temperature <-65 ° C.

Applications:

Electrical insulating applications, chemical industry, bearings, seals, filters, etc.
