PEEK Components

PEEK (Polyether ether ketone)

PEEK is a high performance thermoplastic offering excellent strength, stiffness and dimensional stability in high temperature and harsh environments. It has high wear resistance, broad chemical resistance and is available in a range of unfilled and filled grades. It is commonly used in applications such as back-up rings, wear rings, valve seats and as a replacement to metal components where weight is an issue.
