The Ketron® PEEK group of materials is based on polyetheretherketone resin. This advanced material exhibits a unique combination of high mechanical properties, temperature resistance and excellent chemical resistance and is an extremely useful, popular and accessible advanced plastics material.
Ketron® PEEK grades offer chemical and hydrolysis resistance similar to PPS, but can operate at higher temperatures.
PEEK 1000 offers steam and wear resistance, while carbon-reinforced PEEK provides excellent wear capabilities. Our latest grade, PEEK HPV, offers outstanding bearing performance. PEEK can be used continuously to 480°F (250°C) and in hot water or steam without permanent loss in physical properties.
For hostile environments, PEEK is a high strength alternative to fluoropolymers.
PEEK carries a V-O flammability rating and exhibits very low smoke and toxic gas emission when exposed to flame.
Main properties of our range of PEEK sheet and rod are:
Ketron® Peek 1000 stock shapes are produced from virgin polyetheretherketone resin and offer the highest toughness and impact strength of all Peek grades. Previously known as Peek 450G
Available colours: Natural (brownish-grey) and Black
Available to buy in: Sheet and rod.
