PEEK semi-finished (SF) products are produced in various forms, such as rods, tubes, sheets, filaments or foils.
There are several ways to produce PEEK SF products. Extrusion is the easiest and least expensive way. Injection molding is well suited for finished parts and short tubes with thin walls. Although Rotomoulding and Hot Compression Molding are more expensive types of processing, they are suitable for large outside diameters and thin-walled tubes. BIEGLO can rely on a number of manufacturers of PEEK semi-finished products. They come from Europe, Asia and the USA.
PEEK SF products can also be reinforced to enhance the individual properties of PEEK. A compound with carbon fibers, for example, increases the mechanical properties, the thermal conductivity and improves creep behavior.
