PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is one of the most popular thermoplastics on the market. That is because, with its excellent combination of properties, the list of PEEK plastic uses is virtually endless. PEEK plastic parts can be found in almost every industry, including aerospace, food and beverage, medical, marine, and electronics. PEEK is available in a variety of grades that offer enhanced benefits to meet your particular needs.
PEEK is an excellent choice for applications that require superior thermal, chemical, and combustion properties. It is resistant to radiation and a wide range of solvents, and can withstand the boiling water and superheated steam used to sterilize medical equipment. Other key properties include:
The superior cleanliness and machinability of PEEK make it the perfect polymer for complex machined parts – such as gears, ferrules, and medical components – that require tight tolerances. At Reading Plastic, our expert machinists can CNC manufacture your PEEK plastic parts to meet all your tolerance and compliance needs.
