Polyketone (PEEK) Plastics

Email Print PDF

These plastic materials are crystalline polymers of aromatic ketones that exhibit exceptional high-temperature performance.

PEEK -Polyetheretherketone is tough and rigid, with a continuous-use temperature rating of 475 degree F. The polymer is self-extinguishing and exhibits very low smoke emission on burning. Its crystallinity gives it resistance to most solvents and hydrolytic stability. PEEK is also resistant to radiation.
