MECHETEC® PEEK ( Polyetheretherketone) is a semi-crystalline high temperature thermoplastic that offers design engineers a truly unique combination of exceptional performance characteristics. When compared with other engineering polymers, this material ranks as the best or nearly the best in every performance category. MECHETEC® PEEK has a relative thermal index of 480°F and has a UL 94 flammability rating of V-0, with very low levels of smoke generation and toxic gas emission. Additionally, this material exhibits excellent electrical properties, which remain stable over a wide range of both temperatures and frequencies.
MECHETEC® PEEK is chemically resistant to a wide range of organic and inorganic liquids and is insoluble in all common solvents. In addition, it is unaffected by steam and hot water and has a very low moisture absorption rate. This material offers superior dimensional stability and machines easily. While unfilled MECHETEC® PEEK offers good wear resistance, Polymer Industries also offers MECHETEC® PEEK with glass fiber filled options as well as Carbon and Teflon filled options.
