PEEK

Extruded Rods

PolyEtherEtherKetone (PEEK) is a high temperature semi-crystalline thermoplastic, belonging to the same fluoropolymer family as PTFE. PEEK is the only polymer that can be used continuously to a temperature of 250° C and above and in hot water or steam without actually losing any of its physical properties.

 

PEEK is a high strength fluoropolymer especially in tough environments, which is one of the reasons it is an expensive material to process. In the recent years since the development of PEEK, it has replaced various other conventional materials such as Brass, Bronze, Stainless Steel, Aluminium, etc.

  • Seal components in the pump and valve.
  • Chemical.
  • Nuclear and oil .
  • Gas industry.

  •  Thermal & Dimensional stability along with excellent mechanical     properties
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Low coefficient of friction, low smoke and toxic gas emissions (compared to other fluoropolymers)
  • Excellent fatigue, stress crack, oxidation and acid resistance
  • Offers outstanding UV resistance
  • 70% more lighter than most polymers; and has enhanced performance

Virgin PEEK is available in various stock shapes such as solid plain sheets, solid round bars and cylindrical bushes. We can also customize components in accordance to technical drawings and / or samples.

  1. Diameters 6 mm up to 110 mm
  2. Lengths1000 mm
  3. Available cut to size

 

NOTE: Custom sizes / diameters and lengths can be made upon request.

PEEK Customized Components

PEEK is one of the only polymers that can replace metal applications for high temperature applications. It has become an essential and a very in demand material when no other material can meet requirements, in the oil and gas industries especially for drilling as well as production.

 

PEEK has also proven to be a successful material for alternative energy production in the streams of solar, wind, nuclear, geothermal and hydropower equipment and components.

 

All unfilled PEEK grades comply with FDA regulations for food contact and use in the pharmaceutical company. Medical grade PEEK is also now being used as body implants especially spine implants as it is a biocompatible material.

 

Hi-Tech has a complete machine shop to turn out finished parts from prototypes up to mass production facilities. We have been machining and fabricating PEEK for over 10 years. The parts manufactured using PEEK exhibit high load bearing capacity and excellent performance in high temperature environments. In additions these parts are heat, moisture, chemical and radiation resistant. PEEK is known to absorb most radiation amongst all plastics and polymers.

 

Some of the industrial parts typically machined with PEEK are:-

 

  • Valve components
  • Bearings and bushings
  • Gears
  • Seals
  • Semi-conductor Components
  • Chemical components
  • Components for the steam industry
  • Oil and gas industry components

 

 

NOTE: Custom sizes and lengths and larger diameters can be made upon request.
