Take a “PEEK”: PEEK Properties, Applications, and Advantages

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

In the world of high-performance plastics, Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) stands as an exceptional material with a wide range of applications. PEEK plastic exhibits remarkable properties that make it an ideal choice for demanding industries, including aerospace and medical.


Properties of PEEK

Custom PEEK part for high temperature applications


PEEK possesses an extraordinary combination of properties that set it apart from other thermoplastics. It boasts exceptional mechanical strength, with a high tensile and flexural modulus, making it suitable for load-bearing applications. Its excellent chemical resistance, including resistance to acids, bases, and hydrolysis, ensures durability in harsh environments. PEEK also exhibits superior thermal stability, with a high melting point and low thermal conductivity, allowing it to withstand extreme temperatures. Furthermore, it is inherently flame retardant, and even self-extinguishing when the heat source is removed.


PEEK Applications


The versatility of PEEK plastic lends itself to a wide range of applications across various industries. In the aerospace sector, PEEK is used for aircraft components, such as brackets, connectors, and insulation. Its lightweight nature, high strength, and resistance to chemicals and UV radiation make it an excellent choice for these critical applications. In the medical field, PEEK is widely used in orthopedic implants, spinal fusion devices, and dental instruments due to its biocompatibility, corrosion resistance, and radiolucency. Additionally, PEEK finds applications in automotive, oil and gas, electronics, and many more industries that demand robust and reliable materials.


Advantages of PEEK


PEEK offers several advantages that make it a preferred material in many industries. Its high strength-to-weight ratio enables the design of lightweight components without compromising structural integrity. The material's dimensional stability ensures precise and consistent part dimensions, reducing the risk of failures or fitment issues. PEEK's excellent chemical resistance and low moisture absorption make it suitable for environments where exposure to aggressive substances is expected. Furthermore, its inherent flame retardancy and low smoke emission contribute to enhanced safety in applications where fire protection is crucial.


Conclusion


PEEK plastic is a remarkable material that has revolutionized various industries with its exceptional properties and versatile applications. Its high strength, chemical resistance, thermal stability, and flame retardancy make it a top choice for demanding applications in aerospace, medical, automotive, and other sectors. As technology advances, PEEK plastic continues to play a vital role in pushing the boundaries of innovation, offering reliable and high-performance solutions to meet the evolving needs of modern industries.
