When it comes to applications that require high-performance plastic, PEEK is often a top recommendation. PEEK machined parts are incredibly strong and durable, so it makes a great fit for a wide array of uses across nearly every industry. As a top PEEK material supplier, Reading Plastic & Metal utilizes this “powerhouse polymer” to its greatest capabilities.
PEEK stands for “polyetheretherketone,” making it part of the broader family of ketone polymers. The unique chemical structure of this thermoplastic makes it incredibly strong and dimensionally stable both under load and in the harshest environments.
PEEK plastic is also available in a variety of grades that offer enhanced properties for specific use. For example, glass-fiber-reinforced PEEK has a reduced expansion rate, increased flexural modulus, and excellent electrical and thermal insulation characteristics. Likewise, carbon-fiber-reinforced PEEK has the highest strength and stiffness properties, outstanding wear resistance and load-carrying capabilities, and higher thermal conductivity.
We’re your source for PEEK plastics. You can choose from raw sheets, tubes and bars, or we can cut your plastic to size. We also offer bending, threading, and other plastic fabrication services if you’d like to save time and have us handle the prep work. Of course, we offer full or partial CNC machining of your order.
We make it easy for you to buy specialty plastics. You don’t have to worry about meeting a manufacturer’s threshold for bulk buyers. We’ll give you the quantity of plastic you need, no matter how large or small, at a fair price. You get something extra when you purchase plastic from us—expertise. We take the time to answer any questions you have about which plastic is best for your project. And when you ask us questions, we draw on our decades of experience working with specialty plastics. We’ve learned hands-on how the materials perform in all sorts of settings, and we pass that knowledge on to you. We’ll deliver your order to your door fast, cut to size and ready to use. No need to spend time and money on a truck and driver.
With decades of experience, we’re known to hold close tolerances and deliver parts fast and ready to go. If you’re looking for a quote on a PEEK machining project—or another one of the plastics we machine—reach out to us at (610) 926-3245 or firstname.lastname@example.org
